Yep, fat gripz. Only used them a couple of times and now they just sit in d gym bag. Another thing I forgot to mention earlier is compression sleeves. I wear them whenever I squat.

I use a hook grip as well.....only break the straps out on weighted pull-ups, or deadlifts and rack pulls when I'm going really heavy and or pushing reps.

I've seen to many ruptured biceps from people doing deadlift with an alternate grip.
