Strong as balls. Honest question, aren’t the straps taking some of the point of the lift away? Not knocking you at all, that’s a legit question.
To be honest, I haven’t met anyone who wasn’t limited by their grip with this exercise (although I’m sure there are some on this site).
It’s impossible to mix the grip so you have to use double overhand, and the wide hand placement on top of that makes it even harder to hold on to.
Since when? I’ve seen plenty of people do it with mixed grip myself included. Awesome lift to the op, out of curiosity hot much do you weigh?
“Dude you are the man”
You are kidding aren’t you, this exercise was originally an exercise to develop the bottom of the snatch pull, throwers picked it up around 40 years ago, and did them slow in strict style, kept back flat lowering slowly in same style as upward pull, oh and usually shrugged at top and raised on toes on lowers weights.
Bondachuck lists around 120 execises in his book Long Term Prep of Throwers, does not list the dead but does list snatch grip deads, and from what I have heard his throwers use that and close grip power snatches as a staple.
Where I train our 19 yr old 77 kg snatched 125 last weekend …and he uses straps when he snatch grip deads (they pause at below knee and relower) he only uses around 140 and uses straps…
Internet has changed all that,
I have a vison of you doing your snatch pulls with a mixed grip,…and your power snatches, …don’t worry I imagaine you not using straps…
okay flame away…
Internet gets dumber each year…
Where is my post do you see me talk about power snatches or snatch pulls ( I assume you mean high pulls) I simply responded to the poster before me that said it is impossible to use mixed grip with wide grip for the snatch grip deadlift. Deadlift you can mix grip but place your hands a few inches further apart and something happens that you cant use mixed grip? Ofcourse if you plan on high pulling the lift or doing a power snatch we arent even talking about the same exercise anymore.
