I completely agree on straps, I feel the same way about wrist wraps/belts/knee wraps. I much prefer to have proper form and good grip strength than just pushing huge numbers. I know my squat should easily be 455 and deads should be at 545 but had a similar back injury last year and haven't been the same since then. 220 ohp took so much fucking work, the last 5 pounds to 2 plates are killing me, I also believe it's more mental than physical tho. Been on vacation for the past three weeks with zero gym, gonna come back hard next week. Need to break some PR's.
