    egg whites

    I have just found out having too many egg whites a day is unhealthy - apparently it can lead to biotin deficiency.

    What is the daily upper limit?

    Thank you.

    Today I lifted 110kg for 6 reps using a mixed grip without straps. There is no lifting chalk available here in Jakarta but maybe I can use blackboard chalk. With straps I can lift 140 kg.

    lifting straps for deadlifts

    Should I use lifting straps when I do deadlifts?

    If I dont, the exercise just improves my grip strength and doesnt benefit my thighs/back as much as it could.

    Please advise.
