I think it's one of those things, where you have to judge when to start using it for a particular lift. Like a belt, kind of.

Haven't got around to using straps yet (or a belt for that matter), but whenever I do, there will be no shame in that, obviously. They're a means to an end (i.e., lifting more weight).
