    ^^ Just the natural shape of the arm demands (at least for me) that the grip becomes widers, which adds centimeters to the lift and makes it more awkward all in all.

    Conceptionist , that would be easily addressed by just adding some over hand lifts. Im doing 5*5 at 140-150 with double overhand without any issues. (or right now im doing light deadlifts in the smith because the horrible bro gym lacks any bars except for z-bars :embar: ) This is of course only meaninful if there are drawbacks (.e.g., damage risk) with hook grip, otherwise hook grip seems better.

    Sure, but I won't gain any extra points in competition for using a double overhand so there's really no reason to. Just wanted to bitch about the thumb pain [​IMG]
    I'm sure the damage thing will be less of a problem when the skin has become rougher.

    Does hook grip make masturbating shit because your thumbs really rough?

    Maybe having rough thumbs will give you a different sensation?

    Warming up double overhand and switching to mixed always seemed strange. Slightly different motor patterns. I use a mixed grip from the get-go these days.

    Whoosh, tightening my shit up and dumping carbs = I'm down like 3-4lbs from last week, most of it I'm guessing being water weight.

    Moving sucks. My life has been turmoil the past two weeks. That, trying to coordinate the move to NYC, work's picked up. Completely fell off the wagon on dieting and working out. I feel gross. Heading up to MN for the weekend, started dieting again today and will start working out again come next week.

    Working on a billion dollar deal at work that should really help pad my resume. :slayer:

    Bro I had cellulitis that caused a 104 fever, a three week recovery and then sprained my ankle last weekend and it's more swollen now than it was last weekend. I haven't been to the gym in like a month

    Checked my bank balance for the first time in a while yesterday. Realised I'm legit poor right now. Going to try live on $2 a day until I start my internship. Yesterday I ate 1.25kg of boiled potatoes and 150g of whey. If genuine poverty people can live on $1 a day I can do $2.

    eggs are surprisingly expensive in england like $0.30 each. I feel like this is the perfect time to cut, i'm too poor to afford to cheat.

    Nice!!. I finally got my chin up bar and dip set up in my basement only to find the parallel bars don't fit. I'll get a picture up later.
