    I don't know about this. My hook grip is just as strong as my mixed grip, maybe even a bit stronger, it just hurts a LOT more when you're getting used to it.

    I should have said many people not most.

    In regards to which grip is stronger, I should have said it depends on the individual. I now recognize that my comment was a generalization.

    As already mentioned by everybody, this was a great article, and I believe my weak points are glutes, hamstrings, and probably abs as well.This would explain a lot of things.

    I do have one question for you guys...

    When you go over the 400lb mark with deadlifts, do you do with or without the use of chalk or gloves?
    Height: 6'1" | Weight: 235 | Goal Weight: 240 at < 9% BF

    I create music specifically for listening to while lifting weights at MusicForMuscles.com

    Great article. These ratios are going to seem ridiculous, but here is where I'm at:

    Bench: 290
    Squat: 335
    Dead: 565

    Pretty clear my quads suck...so trying to do more squats. I've always done really deep squats, but I think that is limiting my quad work...do you think I should try some "higher" squats? I wonder what my deadlift could be if I actually had a good squat lol. I'm about 6' tall and 185. Long arms, strong back obviously.

    Your numbers are not that far out of whack. You probably have long arms and thus the good pull and relatively weak bench.
