Use straps for a few select exercises where the grip gives out before the muscle you are working. Shrugs are a good example. I also use them for semi stiff deadlifts. I don't want to quit due my grip giving out. Dumbbell rows is another. I use them for these three exercises.

I don't know why anyone would use gloves. Doesn't a man's hand's supposed to feel like a man's hand or should they be soft like a woman's?

Gloves will also increase the surface area of your hand, making them smaller and your grip will decrease - like using a fat bar

So far gloves didn't make my hands soft at all.  But when my skin is dry and cracks & bleeds uhh it is inside my glove and not all over the equipment.  Which is nice!   Cool  Plus yeah it makes it like using a fat bar and grip actually got a little better.

If grip is a problem then use straps and train your grip separately
Holding back progress on other lifts because your grip is weak or you use gloves is silly

Straps come into play once my grip goes.

straps, gloves, full suits, bench shirts... no, no, and no.  Roll Eyes

nothing is more pathetic than a powerlifter using all this gear and it allows him to lift more than a hundred pounds more.  total cheating and fake.  no respect for this at all.

when it comes to bodybuilding, I still use none. 

if your going to use gloves or straps you better be doing more than 5 reps.  not putting on this gear just for some useless 1 rep.

I only advocate the use of chalk!  I use it only on my heaviest sets for deadlifts when the grip starts to go.

anything else in my books is lame.
