I used to use a mixed grip switching each set the over/under hand. This worked well.
Now I just use a double overhand. I concentrate on my hip movement and the proper arch in my back.
Doing it like a powerlifter and putting my back in jeapordy is not to my benefit. By that I mean when the lift is changed with the back bending forward and the spine taking part of the load.
You would think that people whose sport DEPENDS on their ability to deadlift would do something in such a way that they maximized poundages while subsequently minimized the chance of injury.
Of course, if “not doing it like a powerlifter” means super strict form, super slow reps, and super light weights, then yeah, I guess you could do that too.[/quote]
I’ve just never seen a competition lift in good form.
Not here to argue, If I pissed you off, I’m sorry for you.
