    My best deadlift ever was 567 last month, never used straps in my life. Just chalk and an overhand overhand pull.

    Interesting...everything I've ever read said over-under grip was THE way to do deadlifts...

    Pretty well all the best in the world do double overhand. I started double overhand just because Ive always trained for hypertrophy and over under seemed like it would cause imbalances

    What are the odds of an injury to the thumb with a hook grip? Ive never used one before but im all for whatever will aid in lifting heavier.
    pretty minimal risk. It hurts but you’ll adapt. You don’t feel the pain when you pull a PR.

    Snake's thread about the hooks has me curious and I'm sort of looking into them.
    i would STRONGLY advise against hooks for dl. You need to be able to bail if necessary.

    You can pull that double overhand? Wow.

    I’ve pulled 585 double overhand sumo, but failed at conventional. The speed off the floor rips it out of my hands.

    One easy change you can make is stop thinking of your sets as a group of reps. Think of it as successive singles. Your setup and bracing are very important for a max effort single. The more practice you can get the better.

    This is gold. it's how I learned to pull and how I taught my Danny Divito looking wife. If you're doing a set of 5, think of it as 5 quick singles. This will teach you to properly set up and brace for every rep.

    Also - touch and go is out for your PL training. No bouncing plates off the ground. It's not an option anyways if you do what Tool and I are saying. But if you're going to keep doing sets, there is a slight pause on the floor. Touch and go has it's place, but not for you right now.
