I've not (yet) developed that Imaginary Lat Syndrome but I do notice that shoulder rotation exercises and now walking around I am at least brushing some extra stuff now. It's all your fault Rmtt for telling me about those straps. Last night I did my sets @ 12 with an extra plate above what I ever tried without them

LOL.....Your back is infinitely more stronger than your grip...and I have done plenty of grip work.

But I'm not ashamed to admit I break the straps out for any Dead-lifts or Rack-Pulls that are 4 plates or higher. Or when doing weighted pull-ups.

With the straps, I can focus on pulling "through" my elbows if that makes any sense.

Last night I amused myself because I was able to lift my pinkies like I was having a nice drink

Is it strange when the guy on the rack next to you just starts giggling in the middle of a set :

Same here...but I've always been a glutton for punishment.

I remember years ago thinking that if I wasn't nauseated after a leg workout....I wasn't going hard enough.

Times have changed though.....and I now realize there's much more to it than that.
