    At only 5' 10" I'm feeling kinda small here. 265 this morning, with ab veins, so there is that I guess.

    The best took you have for injury prevention is your brain. Lift smart. Challange your limits, sure, but know where they are. Work the muscle, not the weight. Discipline not only applies training hard, but also knowing when enough is enough.

    The few times I've injured myself it's when I was being dumb and not knowing my limits due to past injuries.

    My opinion, use it all.

    Wrist wraps: They are important for pressing movements but will save you some serious injury over time to your wrists with squatting. These are my go-to wraps for years.



    Knee wraps: I have always put on knee wraps as soon as I got over 275. I once trained for a Raw Classic and it was probably on of the stupider things I have done in my lifting career. My knees were a wreck for months to follow. Knee wraps will help you out of the hole but they also allow for you to use more weight for the top end of the movement which I like. For DLing, they are okay with my form but not tight. They can give me a problem setting if too tight and my ass will come up too quick.

    Belt: I use a thin belt; just what I have always used. Never liked the PL stiff, wide, non-tapered belts you see at every PL meet.



    Wrist straps: Oh hell yeah I use them for back work. I use both the straps and the hooks. I like the hooks for Lat Pulldowns because you don't have to wind them up tight. The straps are good for lower cable rows. I don't like the idea of using anything for DL but that's comes from my PL days. Also if you ever need to drop the weight, there's nothing to prevent you from doing that quickly.

    For the guy that wants to chime in about grip strength;
    PLing: I never missed a DL due to grip.
    BBing: A chain is only as it's weakest link. Your grip is the weak link in developing a good back. Take it out of the equation.



    Hard work beats talent when talent doesnít work hard.

    I need a new belt. I have an Inzer lever belt and I kind of hate it. It doesn't fit right and the lack of taper bothers me. I'd like something thinner.
    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either.
    Pretty much just leave me alone.
