If you can't hold onto 75lbs, your grip is weak. Don't use straps - your grip will improve.
I think I have decent form. But here's my problem: I can't dead two plates yet so the bar sits low and I don't let it touch the ground. This kills my grip because I never let the bar go. Should I be using straps? I have no idea how to use them and don't think my gym has any extras.
I guess I've never had a good dead feeling anywhere on my body. I dead so low, like 75lbs and my arms are stocked. I drop the bar and go on elsewhere. My grips not that horrible either. I static hold two 55 DBs for 3X60 seconds. I don't know what about deads is troubling me. What do you guys suggest?
If your butt is too low to begin with, most people end up straightening a lot before the pull gets seriously underway. Make sure to keep your head up and drive your feet into the floor and your head to the sky. Practice pulling "back" on your deadlifts - this should help you get your hips into the movement.
Also, I was told to ride the bar up my legs, but this was bruising me a lot and giving my legs many red marks. How do you guys do this? And, how low do I want my butt? I usually have it extremly low, like, as low as the bar with a 10lb on each side. I saw this one guy doing it with 45s and his butt was more out, not low. It wasn't a straight leg deadlift though. Which way is better?
