I was thinking about fatgripz as well, do they actually work or is it just a gimmick. Wanted to get them mostly to beef up my forearms.

Never use straps man. I'm still double over handing. Wont stop that until I'm in the 400lb range, then hook grip because I've tried over under and it moves the bar bath out and makes me a bit more spilled over for some reason.
Yeah like I said hesitant about straps, most likely will not do it, though I heard they are good for shrugs to isolate traps better. Can you describe hook grip?
As for totals, squat really puts me back, really need to up my game, but as for 1RM's Squat - 185, Bench - 225, Deadlift - 315 = 725

lifting twice a day would be fucking optimal though. too bad i'm not independently wealthy so there goes that idea.
That makes me feel better about things. If you were to do AM/PM how would you work it, different body parts or something?
