I'm doing quite heavy dead lifts (for me) and I find my grip is slipping a bit. Just wondered if anyone would recommend it?

I've recently started using it and it has really helped me deadlift where I was before failing to hit my reps, and now increasing weight as well. I'm aware I probably look a bit of a knob but I'm managing.

It made a big difference.

No more sweaty hands, bar slippage and I finished my reps.

After ripping a callus clean off I gave it a go but I actually found it more effective changing my grip so to the bar sits where the fingers join the hand.

That's a good idea. I hadn't thought of that.

That's from watching Mark Rippatoe videos. He has a good one on bar positioning and showing the reason why you get calluses in the first place.

Thanks for the tip. I've just started watching his videos. Incredibly informative. I'm certainly going to make sure I follow his advice.
