  • What to do?

    I have reached a point with my rack-deads where I can no longer grip the bar (even with wraps) and get into a consisten lifting flow. Every time I lift the weight my grip gives out and the wraps begin to slip causing me to lose control of the weight. After every rep I have to re-wrap and then attempt the rep. I have the Shiek wraps with the dowel. But for losing my grip my back is not to the point where it has been fatigued. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Maybe lower the weight and do full deads if you can?? That way you'll be able to grip the lower weights...and still get good results from full deads.

      Thanks I will try that. But even then I assume I will eventually run into the same problem there as well. At that point do you just find a way to alter the volume by either lowering the weights and increasing sets and/or reps?

        Your rack deads weights should be MUCH higher than your full deadlift weights I'd imagine. It might take a long while to get to the point to where you run into the same grip problem with full deads. Maybe working on your grip via forearm excersises may help also too. I think with straps and decent grip strength one should be able to hold over 400lbs with no problems. Unless your going over this for full deads, you should be okay without working on your grip strength. Plus as you get stronger, so should your grip.

              This girls walks up to me and says " My God you're good looking!"

              I say" I know!"

              She gets offended and says" WHAT?!"

              I said " I know I am goodlooking!"

              She said " You're also and ASSHOLE!"

                    Ok, sorry about that Batdog is the mean side of my, hehe. I would lighten the load somewhat and be sure your form is perfect and maybe consider some better straps (or hooks) like mentioned above, somebody was also recommending some Lee Priest straps on prowriststraps.com lately, you could check that out.

                      Thanks BatDog. I might try the hooks. Right now I am using the Shieks w/dowel. I might give the hooks a try.
