I’m not a total newbie, but far from seasoned lifter. My biggest problem I’m having is my grip. It’s not a matter of slipping, but rather just my hands opening up during deadlifts.
Tonight for example I did 3x10 with 225lbs doing stiff leg deadlifts. I was right at the edge of dropping the bar by the 10th rep. I’ve racked pulled 400lbs no prob, although for only 10 seconds, then my hands just give out.
This is really starting to limit me now. I can’t do more than 225lb for deadlift sets much more than 10 reps.
I’m almost thinking about getting wraps, although it’s going to look silly. I’ve been lifting on an off for 4 years now, and been consistenly lifting for 6 months. My grip is just simply not keeping up anymore.
