I've been using Lasso Straps for a while now and they're nice. But when I got a chance to try out these Figure-8 Straps... WOW! Being a Strongman and wanting that big Deadlift, these will get you there. You lock on to the bar and you feel connected to it. You can move crazy weight with the help of these. Highly recommend this product and all others by Gymreapers!
