I am just wondering if hook grip is going to impact DL a lot, especially high rep DL since relatively high reps are found in 531 program. The reason I want to incorporate the hook grip is that I feel better on my set up for my sumo DL. I feel it is more natural and the lats are engaged more. when I do the mix grip, sometimes the bar is drifting away from me on the supinated hand.
But the problem with the hook grip is I can’t really do high reps for DL. It is so painful that I feel like my thumb is torn off. I am kinda stranded now. I want to use hook grip but I can’t use it for high reps.
