Sorry to ask this, but I really need to get some advice and fast. I have a deadlift comp. Tuesday and I was just told by the weight room manager that he will only allow pronated grip (straps are ok to use), because he doesn’t want some newbies blowing out their biceps. I’m ticked off since I have always used mixed grip and I don’t want to switch because I do not want to change my setup this close to the competition.
So my question is this: Is there any proof that having a mixed grip will blow out your bicep(s) more than a pronated grip?
If not, are there any articles here on T-Nation or anywhere else that support the use of mixed grip? (I have been googling shit for the last hour)
