Oh, hey guys, I hope you don’t mind if I take this on a slight tangent…
So recently, when I was sumo deadlifting (vid in BOI) I almost got the weight up, but right before lockout or so, the fingers of my “over” hand sort of caught on my thigh and my grip loosened. I have no problem with this conventional because my hands don’t hit anything.
If you understand what I’m describing, any suggestions guys?[/quote]
I don’t think there is a real “fix” for this other than just ensuring you are gripping the hell out of the bar and making sure you are firing those hips forward. What’s your hand placement/spacing like? (I guess I could probably look at the vid, huh?)[/quote]
The vid doesn’t really help much lol. I’d say my grip was about shoulder width apart. Eh, oh well, no sumo for me, sigh.
EDITE: Thanks nate and Pigeon (I didn’t recognize that you were referring to me, acronyms, lol)! I probably should work on my grip some, with my tiny hands, that is a weak point. Thanks again!
