You're a little late to the game. Your grip may suffer at first but you'll adapt quickly.
Yeah, a little late but I was hesitate to get chalk everywhere. I found chalk that comes in a bag that you squeeze, a lot less messy. Actually i'm as strong as I was with straps and now my forearms will get worked. Paid 3.50 on Amazon for the product, it's the type of chalk bag a gymnast would use.
