When pulling heavy weights, it’s common for the forearms to fatigue more quickly than the targeted body part. For example, when deadlifting 300+ lbs, the larger back muscles can generally handle the weight load much more effectively than the smaller muscles of the forearms.
By using lifting straps, you effectively take the forearms out of the equation, allowing the targeted muscle to handle nearly all of the load. This generally enables you to lift heavier weights for a greater number of repetitions.
The Harbinger Heavy Cotton Lifting Straps (Pair) are comfortable and easy to use. Simply wrap slip them over your wrists and wrap the strap over the bar, and you’re ready to go.
