Re: does this deadlift look better?

Narrow is fine *as long as that's what feels best.* Like I said, on the grip width, it's tough to tell from the pic. But most people err on the side of too wide.

Stand with your hands at your side. Stick your thumbs out hitchhiker style but pointing towards your leg. Once your thumbs hit your thigh/leg - that is the proper width/grip on the bar.

Re: does this deadlift look better?

thats exactly how i set it, but when i mix grip my underhand arm goes about 3/4" of an inch slightly wider because it doesn't hurt my shoulder as much that way.

When i go both hands overhand grip, i do exactly as you describe

Re: does this deadlift look better?

Jamie must have paid attention in class at the BB Cert.

Chest up, Chin Down, Deep Breath and pull up keeping the weight above your scapila. The bar should go straight up if looking from the side. Keep the deep breath until you place the weight on the ground it will help support you spine and core.

Matt,
If you ever get the chance I cant stress enough to go to the barbell cert with Rippetoe. I cant wait to do a Crossfit total because I know I am gonna go thru the roof.

I had a lot of bad habits picked up over the last 25 years of weight training that he fixed in two days.

Good luck dude.

And by the way - chicks love ripped up shins.

Re: does this deadlift look better?

I tried to, it was very hot, I was hungry and I did at least 6 shots of tequila the night before.

Steve,

Ca you email those pics, I want to use that pr 5rm dead as my avatar. How was the drive home? Use any of the stuff from the cert with your clients yet? I got to trash a train with the anatomical stuff we learned.

Jamie,

I sent them and I will check because I think I have more.

Did you get the one in the bar when you were intangled with the rather large women named Bertha.

Dont worry bro - its our secret - me, you, and the crossfit board.

The school of the blind. Ft Lauderdale Florida.

As far as the ears - a good sign not to mess with a guy.

Learn/try the hook grip...use that for when the grip goes away...

Re: does this deadlift look better?

I can hook my Cleans and snatch, but with heavy deadlifts, it hurts like hell. I would suggest switch grip and going both way with it or straps on your working sets.
