At my gym there's a monstrous black guy from Jamacia. He's not too huge (probably 5'10", 195lbs, 7% BF) but he looks amazing. He doesn't train legs, but this year he has begun to do deadlifts -- but they're strange. He keeps the BB between his legs when he deadlifts, and uses a mixed grip. The most I've seen him do is 2PPS for a decent amount of reps. I asked him why he does them like that, and he said it's because doing them that way also hits the biceps. I'm somewhat incredulous. On the other hand, the guy has been training forever, looks amazing, and is a fitness major.
Ever heard of this deadlift variation, know it's name, think it's crap? I'm curious.
