    Strap help

    I'm using seatbelt straps to help with me lift maximal weight on snatch-grip deadlifts and I find it really challenging to properly wrap up my right hand as I do this last. Do you have any tips?

    You could buy some webbing used for rock climbing, it would be as strong, a lot softer/more comfortable, and a lot more narrow, which should make it easy to wrap up with.

    Yep.

    Here's a video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySrRoE2Bpwk

    I think Mat Fraser (from crossfit fame) also does this with his straps.

    Inexpensive cotton straps last a long time and are usually about $8-$10
    Now OK for Sig line to be a novel
