Deadlift grip? Need some help.

  1. Deadlift grip? Need some help.


    I deadlift sets of 5 at 315. I have no problem doing the weight. The only thats holding me back is my grip. Half the time the weight is kinda dangling in my fingers and that hurts a lot. Is there any exercises I can do to improve my grip? Thanks.

  2. Back and Trap work will strengthen your grip. Forearm work will help too. Try chalk, thats what i use.

    Static hangs will also strengthen your grip. Grip a chinup bar, and hang to 60 seconds at a time... add weight as needed.

  4. The more you train heavy deads the stronger your grip will become. You may want to utilize a hook grip by hooking your thimb under the bar and wrapping over it with your fingers.

    Chalk really helped me also.They have grippers for sale too on certain powerlifting sites that are suppose to help grip.

  6. My dead lift skyrocketed but my grip didn't keep up so I started using straps.....problem was solved...so i thought.
    I could do a lot more weight but I never trained without straps after starting. So now im paying the price getting my grip back up to speed.

  7. I use captain of crush grippers and rack deads with a thicker bar (or towels wrapped around a regular one) and a 5 second hold at the top.

  8. yea i stopped using my straps a long time ago and havent looked back, the only thing i use them for is bent over rows

  9. weighted pull ups
    for grip
