After four years of mixed-grip deadlifting and no competitive aspirations, I’ve decided to switch to straps for deadlifting anything I can’t hold on to with double-overhand. I bought figure 8 straps and I love everything about them except that I rarely seem to get an even grip on the bar with them. I’m usually slightly off to one side or another.
Da-Dunk. Da-dunk. Da-dunk. This is no good. Very annoying. I want one solid THUD per rep.
I’m also not a strongman, but I figured this forum probably has the most experience with figure 8 straps.
Anybody have any cues or tips that work for them?
