Hi guys, looking to compete at the end of the year in the deadlift single lift and currently doing 4 x 6 every week, but was just wondering, when not performing one rep max's etc so my sets of 6 for example, shall i use straps like ive done in the past? obviously i know they cant be used in comp, but in comp ill be performing 1reps so im thinking the straps wouldnt be detrimental for the rep sets or am i wrong?

I hate the saying do as i say not as i do mate, but i would bin the straps off. I tend to use them as i`ve a mental issue with over under since an injury last year but i would go without.

cheers bro, ive been opting for liquid chalk and dont really miss the straps for deading, still been using the straps for other back exercises like rows etc but might stop using them too, although with all the other lifts my back gets fried off alo more with straps rather than my grip going before my back even gets a chance to get a pump! lol

Grip wise I would recommend never using them apart from when trying new rep ranges etc at a higher weight. Your grip does improve.
I don't like over/under either as it scares me. A slight bend in the elbow and it's good night bicep. Double over all the way. Unfortunately that takes away some of chalks support as it's still rolls, but gradually I've got my grip up to reps with 180 no probs with just fingers and no thumbs both overhand.

Personally, I always think thumbs weaken grip.

Nic, take a tip from Coan and from Turpin. Hammer lifts on supporting muscles - SLDL, good mornings, high pulls, power shrugs etc. And deadlift too of course.

Identify if you're a rounded thoracic easy puller, hard lockouter, or a hollow back hard puller easy lockouter!

Me and Glen struggle from the floor but lock out easy, Si and Jamie pull loads from the floor and struggle more with lockout. They ALL lift a lot more than me!

hmm interesting reading about over / under and double over.. I've never deadlifted double over, always over / under (left hand over, right over). didn't realise it was putting bicep at risk.

Interesting.  I've always used over / under as well and I alternate which hand goes over / under for different sets.  I suppose I should start working on double over to improve grip strength.
