I wouldn't use that grip on a higher rep set.

Maybe use a block to stand on. Get a little more stretch in your hams.

Another thing to try is stand on a bench and use dumbbells. Gets a really nice stretch.

Are you saying you'd go double over? My grip is pretty strong but on longer sets I'd rather keep it secure.

Flynn- I've been hunting on craigs list all week, emails have been sent haha

Yeah, I would go double over. I use straps on exercises like this, but I can understand the mentality of those who don't. An option in that case would be the hook grip, which will be secure enough.

I dont think the grip matters so much when each rep is completely reset like that.

Holy crap, hook grip for 12 reps of 325! That would suck. Great pulling man, super strong.

Thanks Zen.

Joey- What were your concerns with using an alternate grip on high rep sets? Just curious.

First, very strong! You are built to pull! You should be able to be a very good deadlifter if you work at it.

Bend your knees a bit during the exercise. It places your back is a safer position. Don't use quad drive, but get some bend in those knees.

Thanks big guy. I have a ever so slight bend in my knees but you are right I could probably get away with a bit more. I haven't been pulling for too long but I'm probably good for 520 or so, conventional not SLDL. Thanks for the tips!

Seeing all those bicep tear videos with that grip. Maybe resetting the weight makes it better as another poster suggests, but I would go double over.

Good work Chalky!

Joey- you are nuts bro. Try the hook grip for reps with any weight and you will quickly change your mind there, lol. I I'd say double-overhand with straps is fine for stuff like this, but I have never had a problem using a mixed grip during 10-20 rep sets of pulls...both reset on the floor and tap and go.

I've used it for reps, but I do like just using straps better. It is not the most comfortable thing in the world, that is for sure.

Yea, I think anything over like 2 reps with the hook and I tap out, lol.

I've been lifting for 13 years and have been to over a dozen PL meets and have only seen one tear in all that time, and it was a guy who had recently had surgery on his arm for an unrelated issue. As long as you don't try curling the weight up while pulling it's fine.

Could be. For a true 1 rep max I would always use that grip as well and don't see any problem with it. For multiple rep sets I will always strap up, but that is just me.

that was insanely easy. looked like you could have done 405 for 5 or 6 reps. i threw on 135 and tried to some of these they feel pretty nice, but because i used to deadlift with horrific form, i am still practicing deadlifting with good form so using a stiffleg will be counterproductive

Thanks, I've done 475 stiff legged fairly easily so I'm sure I can handle 5 or 6 with 405. Just need to buy more weights.
