The benefits of Figure 8 Straps for Weight Lifting

For those of you who have always wondered what the benefits of figure 8 lifting straps are!
Lifting straps are an implement used by wrapping them around your wrists and then the dumbbell – barbell or chin-up bar. This attaches the weight to your wrist, alleviating the strain on your forearms and grip.

Using weight lifting straps properly will allow you to focus all your effort on the target muscle.
Putting this into perspective, I will give you an example of the effectiveness of weight lifting straps. Let’s say you are doing a set of deadlifts, and you aim for seven repetitions. On your 6th rep, your grip starts to fail, and your forearms become overworked, making the last rep near impossible to complete.
If you were using lifting straps, this would never happen because your grip and forearm are taken out of the equation. You can then concentrate on working out your back for maximum muscle gains. You will also notice that with lifting straps, you will be able to lift more weight immediately intern. This will allow you to gain more muscle.

So you should consider using lifting straps on your back exercises such as deadlifts, barbell rows, Pull-ups, chin-ups and shrugs. Try not to overuse the straps, as your body will adapt and get used to not gripping so hard.
To combat this, try using the lifting straps towards the end of your sets and having a short break from using them, keeping your body versatile, and perform specific forearm and grip exercises, e.g., wrist curls.

Lifting straps will help you on your way to developing that wide strong, and muscular back that all lifters strive for.
