It's awesome that you posted this because I made a conscious decision to ditch straps and the use of alternate grips on certain exercises in an attempt to improve grip strength.
Do you typically stick with a Chest/Back, Shoulders/Arms, and Legs split, or do you utilize other methods of training as well? If so, what is the frequency like? I can already see you are pretty high volume.
