If you need your back to get stronger, here is how you can.
All your exercises require a lot from your grip, so by the time you are halfway through the workout, your hands and forearms are too worn out to handle heavy weight. Using straps will allow you to train heavy and save your grip. You should also experiment with straight-arm lat pulldowns as a finisher. These work like pull-ups but don’t require any grip strength.
Quick Tip: Don’t overuse straps. Building grip strength is important for deadlifting and long-term back development.
