    lately i've been doing 20 rep sets of deadlifts and i noticed that its my grip that sometimes keeps me from finishing out all 20 reps....it eventually slips to my fingers. my friend told me about these hooks u can buy but i don't think i want to travel down that path. i've read a little bit about grip work exercises, anyone have any experience with them?

    currently or what i did for the majority of my lifting career?

    current: Wendler's 5/3/1

    90% of my time lifting: work up to a heavy set of 3 or 5 with a heavy single about once every 4-5 months.

    At first glance, I read hook grip, and thought "bad-ass". But then I re-read.

    hook grip != grip hooks

    Actually, opposite end of the spectrum.
