I always use straps for deadlifts and rows. Without them I would be unable to train my back to failure without my grip giving out first. That should solve your problem. If you are worried about your forearms not getting enough of a workout, only use the straps on your absolute heaviest sets.

Be very careful with an alternating grip when deadlifting. I'm not the only person on this forum who has torn a bicep tendon this way...better off using a double overhand grip, with straps on your heavy sets.

I started using these heavy grips I bought on eBay, about a year ago.

I started out on 100lbs, now I'm on 200lbs. I think that once I get to 350lbs, I'll be able to rip the bricks out of walls with my bare hands :naughty:

I just leave them by the computer, and do sets here and there. It's unbelievable how much stronger they make your hands and forearms. Definitely worth the money. I think straps make your grip weak, personally.

I made a link to the eBay store I bought them from. Not sure if that's cool, if not, just delete.

I refuse to use straps, I just make my hands stronger. My grip is wayyy behind because of years of straps. Now I use Kroc rows(high rep DB rows), some gripper work, farmers walks, and a few other things I really feel its better to make your week points stronger as opposed to "help" them and keep them week just my .002

BTW I use a double overhand grip as long as I can and then switch to over under

I have a Hammer Strength Gripper at my gym it holds up to 7 plates and I use it atleast 2x week 5 quick sets and I find it improves my strength on every lift. High reps each set like 50.
