Hello Sherdog! I'm rather new to serious lifting, bought Starting Strength, read it and did my first work-out last friday and looking forward to my next on monday. Anyways, I haven't done the "big three" ever before and when I picked up the bar for my workset of deadlifts I realised that grip strength is going to be an issue for me, perhaps not the next week, but sooner or later it is since my grip is not very strong. I know that I can use straps, but I'd rather get a stronger grip and save the straps for later. I also know that the deadlifts themselves will increase my strength, and I've read the FAQ so I know what exersises to do to increase my grip strength. Now to my question: When should I do my grip strength exercises? Do I do them the same day as my deadlifts(1,5 days a week)? Same day as all my lifting (3 times a week), every day? Do I do them in directly after my workout or do I do them later the same evening? Thanks in advance for any advice I can get, and excuse my English, it's not my first language.
