Straps will do. But I seriously dont think you might need them if you're not doing at least 2x your bodyweight.

I'll prefer not to rely on straps at all. If really need be, just use mixed grip for deadlift.

That's if we can find a gym like that that's available to public access. Them instructors bitch about deadlifts all the time.

to start off, public gyms dont have enough weights for straps to even be relevant

You are only as strong as your weakest link. Dont use straps - this leads to weak girlish hands. Grip it and rip it.

regarding Gripad and other similar glove-like innovation, they have no place in a serious training program. a glove is merely a piece of loose stuff betwn the hand and the bar, reducing grip security and increasing the effective diameter of the bar. Gloves make bars harder to hold on to. and gloves that incorporate a wrist wrap prevent the wrist from getting used to training. the only legit excuse to use a glove is when covering an injury (like a bad cut) where the workout is vital and cannot be done without covering.

You should just work on strengthening your actual grip.

Wow thanks bros for all the advice, guess im gonna use barehands instead, think back twice if using a lifting strap and lifting 1.5X of my weight may swell my wrist if i slip it accidentally. Again... Thanks for the adivice gymers.
