Good question. Cant remember if we allowed them or not last time. I think not, and it might have been because they give extra leverage and can help add extra reps, but can anyone else confirm?

Having said that, 220 is a lot of iron, and wraps would be good for a bit of knee protection.

If you can do without them for now that'd be better. Then we can debate in the meantime whether wraps can be allowed or not!

Must admit I have been thinking about this myself.

220 is a long term goal of mine even if it wasnt particularly deep. Have never worn wraps but wandered what difference they would make. If I could just to get one rep out with it would be nice. Never had more than 200 on my back so maybe just a bit too far (for now  Cheesy)

Got me wandering what the Masters U82.5k equipped qualifying weight and record is now.

I done 17 reps on 140 for Deads yesterday but I had Squatted Monday and done Deads Tuesday so wasnt exactly fresh  Roll Eyes

I wanted to give it a go though. I was training next to the Harlequins team so I kinda had to give it some as they are all tanks, even the smaller dudes  Shocked

I can definitley get over 20 reps. I will go in fresh next week and try to get it filmed.

As I'm joining a gym when I move, and will be building myself up on these lifts with the clear intention of doing well, I'd vote no to strapping of any kind (not even keen on belts), on the premise that

1. I won't be buying any so couldn't use myself (!!)
2. It will help your lift to a different degree to the next guy

Just found this. It'll put you men to shame...

Toni West (2nd behind Cheryl at the WNBF worlds this year), performing bench squats with 315 lbs (140kg) for reps. After seeing this, I am never going to allow myself to squat with less than 140kg again! Grin

Check out her other vids. Chins with 2 x 20kg plates on her belt. Dips with 20kg. Hacks with 5 plates a side. Crazy strong for a natural. Great physique too. Muscular, yet feminine.

Well due to the huge amount of input on the straps debate (thanks Tony  Cheesy) my recommendation would be no straps allowed for squatting.

Going to have a go at some of these when I get back from New York - managed 180Kg squats yesterday for 6 - but think that was down to the fact I haven't done any heavy work for months now!
Managed 2 on 220Kg deadlifting - but could feel that pulling something deep inside!!
