    Deadlifting with Double overhand grip

    I deadlifted yesterday for the 1st in 16 months since full distal bicep rupture. Had surgery in winter of 2012. The tendon frayed when it snapped and my Dr. thought he was gonna have to use a cadaver tendon, but ended up snipping the frayed end and stretching it instead. Healing process sucked, got an infection, took forever to get full ROM back. Anyway, used double overhand grip for the 1st time and liked it. Was able to pull 385 6 times on my final set and loved every minute of it. Can't wait to deadlift next. I don't feel comfortable using mixed grip anymore. Anyone else like dbl. overhand grip?

    I do.
    with and without gloves.
    I prefer no gloves.
    The women don't like ****ed up hands on their soft luscious milky backs tho.

    Mixed grip feels weird to me.
    I'm not going to grab smash or pass anything with a mixed grip.

    Re: Deadlifting with Double overhand grip

    I'll do double overhand from time to time. Especially on days I'm having trouble controlling my form. For some reason, there are the occasions when I'm not feeling comfortable with my form and heavy deads. When that happens, I trying switching to overhand.

    Learn how to use a hook grip. And don't listen to the pussies about hook grip. Steve Goggins has pulled 900 numerous times with a hook grip. Takes getting used to it.

    Yes depending on the weight amount.
    No chalk rule for this particular "gym"
    & my hands sweat.

    At least admire the fact that I'm not a fag who doesn't deadlift.
    As they're in abundance.

    Re: Deadlifting with Double overhand grip

    lol bitch mittens ... U should have seen me when I first started I rocked gloves, wrist wraps all the way over my forearms and the pussy pad when squatting 225 ha! I have since re applied and received my man card on a probationary status

    I like the double over hand grip when doing dynamic work, On my heavy work I still use a mixed grip. I understand that double over hand is a stronger technique .
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    Re: Deadlifting with Double overhand grip

    Thanks for the input fellas. Pillar, I think I'll try the hook grip this week. I was always told mixed grip, but my surgeon said most of the bicep ruptures he fixes are powerlifters and football players deadlifting with mixed grip. And it's always the underhand grip that ruptures.

    Watched it happen at a meet a month ago... Just practice the hook grip. It takes getting used to. Hurts at first. It is how Olympic lifters grip the bar

    Re: Deadlifting with Double overhand grip

    I have small hands so hook grip is almost impossible. Haven't tried it over 400 though.

    And did someone mention gloves..tsk tsk!
