    Grip approach: Double overhand until 315-405 depending on how I feel, then mixed grip from there on.

    When I bring out the straps: Never.

    That's a good time to bring out the straps for sure it's needed then.

    For myself I do DOH until I'm past 405 then I use to do mixed grip but I've transitioned to hookgrip because I felt I wasn't getting enough pain in my day so might as well destroy my thumbs while I work out. Honestly hookgrip is pretty great you can engage the lats more during the pull but it takes some serious grit to pull 550 hooked cause you are in pain the second you pull the tension out of the bar

    I used to try pressing DOH to like 425 or so. Kind of got lazy I guess and switch to mixed earlier now.

    Sounds like there's going to be puking.

    Yeah, I'd expect so... Although, this is just a little "fun" after our final session of Smolov Jr for bench... And he really struggled with that... So it might not go on that long... But I must not lose!!

    Starting in 2 mins

    Fuck. He won. I got 60, he got 61... No puke for either of us.
    Lower back is the issue. Feels like my spine is gonna come out of my stomach!
    Not happy at losing, but happy with 60.

    Next time, higher weight.

    You got 60 reps with 265lb... Consecutive 60 reps?

    I did one, he did one, yeah. Approx 20 secs between reps. I'm pretty fucked. It's around 50 percent of my 1rm. Also, first deads I've done in 5 weeks

    All double overhand. So... Hopefully some good grip training, too...

    I go double overs till 315 then mixed grip. If i want to stay double overs I'll break out the straps. I do lots of grip work so idc about using straps sometimes

    Was he wearing his transparent mankinis? I love it when he sets up for deads wearing those :eek:
