    Ya that's the way I used to hold my grip too...started using both hands at an overhand grip after advice from my trainer. It definitely makes it harder

    A double overhand, non-hook grip will generally result in grip inhibiting people from using heavy weight. That is unless you have a strong *** grip.

    I used to have a sick grip until I ripped all the skin off the palms of my hands deadlifting and tore the ligament in my thumb. Now it sucks and I use straps for everything.

    Why'd your trainer recommend you change from a mixed grip to double overhand?

    Limitations are for people that have them, and excuses are for people that need them.

    I prefer mixed as well but I hate going left over/right under - always go right over/left under

    I gotta work on switching it up more.

    I've seen there is risk of bicep injury going mixed. Is this a myth or something?

    I go double overhand but my grip is awful. I have to strap up for anything over like 250 for more than 1 rep. Doesn't bother me though, not like I'm thinking of competing, just want to pull as much as possible (which is a tiny amount to begin with)

    When I recently did a pr in deads I used double overhand. But when I recently did rack pulls I did the hook grip. I switch it up time after time

    No there's definitely a risk in taring a tendon or bicep muscle when going palm outward on the grip. It's all in your form. when people struggle, they do crazy things to lift/pull weights, like rock back and forth or try and put too much body into it.

    Is this a good safe way to DL?

    No myth. No myth at all.

    At a heavy pull you need to have great form and completely relax your arms while having pretty much tight everything else and a strong *** grip on the bar.

    That isn't possible doing double overhand right? The bicep tear was a direct result of going mixed? That is scary **** the one guy said it kept him out for 4 months in the comments.

    lol I've seen that video. Amazingly awful attempt by that guy.

    Don't know much about crossfit but it sure seems to get mocked a lot everywhere
