The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Deadlifting grip with straps

    I have been having trouble with straps for a while now, because I have been using the mixed grip. I kept noticing that the straps were never as tight in my under-hand. Today I switched to double overhand with straps and I noticed that the straps were much tighter and I didn't have any problems pulling a new rack pull PR for reps.

    Any thoughts on this? When you are using deadlifting with straps, is double overhand just better than the normal mixed grip? It sure as hell seems that way.
