I really appreciate all the insightful replies above guys. I have one variable that I have to deal with and that is my tremors. My tremors are so bad sometimes I cannot even sign my name. The meds I am on now control the tremors,(and conrol my high blood pressure) which enables me to deadlift raw, but decreases my metabolism to a slow crawl, which is why I have to do tons of cardio on my cut.

Even ignoring my tremor issue, it is a great feeling I can go and smash the occasional super heavy set single of deads using my versagripps and still be proud of my lift. I will go ahead and do as many of my working sets raw and see how far I can get and if need be, strap up without any guilt.

Sharing all you experiences above has really meant alot to me. Thank you.
