    I do conventional dl on my back thickness days.. (I used to do it on leg days)

    I tried sg dl about a week ago n def felt more glute ham usage, but I like to focus on back development as opposed to legs (my legs grow easily) I guess my ? Is how does SG dl help upper back development? I love the lower back extension n growth I get when I do my regular deads.. Should I do both? Thanks

    It helps with upper back development because during a large portion of the lift the upper back must remain static, and towards the upper 1/3 of the lift they have to contract to pull the rest of your body to an upright position. Using a snatch grip does a few things, a really important one being increasing the range of motion. It also does a few other things that are very evident when you actually use the grip, but I dont know how to explain it. I cannot do this to save my life on a deadlift because of my hip mobility, but I used to do it for rack pulls until I sprained or fractured my wrist precisely because of tension caused by wrist wraps and the angle of my wrist during the lift... so now I dont do it. But you could try it!
