Rumble busted my Sweedish Meatballs -Yeah I've mixed up my routine a bit so I haven't tested my max in a while. I may by the beginning of next monthGnP Sonnen -FYI I only pulled 205kg at the start of February. Switching up programmingI_AM_THE_CAWKSUCKER -Man that's a badass goal, I'd like to get 315lbs here soon.GnP Sonnen -That's a good pull for your BW. I'm chasing the 220kg by feb on the events day but I'm doubtful il reach it in that time.I_AM_THE_CAWKSUCKER -I weigh 160lbs right now so yeah pretty closeGnP Sonnen -No bad dode, that's about 2x BW for you right?I_AM_THE_CAWKSUCKER -LbsGnP Sonnen -KG?I_AM_THE_CAWKSUCKER -300GnP Sonnen - I sumo lift with a over under grip. I like that way a lotHow much you pulling sumo? Do you conventional too?
But I just started heavier deadlifts a few weeks ago. I don't really do conventional, it's uncomfortable for me.
Kenny Blankenship - Why use straps and miss out on developing grip strength?
When someone has been training long enough, there comes a point where grip strength becomes the limiting factor to completing the desired volume of various lifts.
Using a mixed grip increases one's grip effectiveness, but as mentioned throughout this thread carries greater risk for bicep tears.
When one fatigues his grip completely on deads, this hampers his ability to do other work requiring strong grip such as ohter pulling movements and even pressing movements. Once your grip is shot, it can lower the remaining workout's quality.
There is also a ceiling to how strong one's grip can get; perpetually trying to increase volume and loading past a certain level doesnt work.
TheBankster - Is 405 overhand no straps a good pull? 165lb BW.. I don't go to gym-so not a lot to compare against.. Garage gymYes, that's a very good pull.
Over 2x bodyweight with no overhand grip and no straps won't win you any powerlifting comps but would make you stand out in most conventional gyms full of regular lifters.
Keep it up.
I use the over under for both conventional and sumo , I can't pull In straps for some reason
