Think of it, you are doing deadlifts, shrugs, back and trap training, cable rows etc. and you don’t have lifting straps with you! This can be difficult for you, especially , for your grip and fingers. These weight lifting straps enhance your grip and reduce finger fatigue occurring from lifting hence, make a must for your gym bag.
