Is your husband bodybuilder or power lifter and need deadlift straps?
Power lifting and bodybuilding are different, you have a few options when it comes to getting comfortable and reliable straps for lifting heavy weight. A few points to keep in mind is durability, comfort and ease of use. As you can see below, some are pretty simple in design, others are a bit more robust. Either way, it’s about lifting weight and usually the heavier the better. Let’s take a look at some of the best deadlift straps available…
Harbinger Closed Loop Nylon Lifting Straps
The essential lifting strap, made of durable nylon, these straps are designed for heavy lifting. A shorter design made for olympic style lifting, these straps are extremely affordable and designed to last. Not as comfortable as the padded versions. Some lifters prefer these straps because they are easy to use and basic in design. Simple to wash and keep clean, sometimes more complicated designs can be harder to keep clean. Available in a variety of colors, Harbinger is a trusted manufacturer of lifting traps for both bodybuilding and power lifting.

Harbinger Padded Lasso Lifting Straps
The most popular and common lifting strap is the “lasso” style. Harbinger added a very nice and comfortable stitched in padding that protects the upper wrist from burns and bruising. Burns and bruising can occur when lifting extremely heavy weights. The stitched in padding helps tremendously to prevent pain and bruising. With lasso styled straps it is easier to use on all bars. The lasso also helps to easily release the weight. Highly durable and most commonly used by bodybuilders and power lifters. A great set of lifting straps!

Final Thoughts on Lifting Straps…
Lifting straps are not gym gear lifters want to buy over and over. Buying a great set of lifting straps can help lifters stay safe and increase total weight lifted. Basic lifting straps will work, for basic lifts. Lifters looking to deadlift heavy weight will want to have some basic padding and durable straps they can trust. After all, lifting heavy weight is to be taken seriously and with safety in mind. That being said, either the padded lasso styled straps or the Versa Grips are highly recommended for long term lifting. The padding goes a long way when lifting heavy weight.
