I wish I knew man. Think it was back in March this year I pulled 250+ for a couple workouts in a row, all without straps (but with chalk).
Joined a new gym a few months back and they dont allow chalk, I can’t believe it’s all down to chalk but all of a sudden grip is letting me down.
I did stop deadlifting for a couple months in-between, so probably a combination of the two again. I know the grip is there and will come back though.
At the moment its a bit of a combo slip-rip, a pull mixed so not much roll going on.
Ha noted, it was definitely crushing pain not shredding, though in my defence it felt like the ‘plain wrong’ kind of crushing. I will nut-up and stop being a ‘little bitch’
