    I asked some broly black guy how to properly deadlift and he showed me how. From what i've seen here and on the internet one palm should be facing you and the other should face away when you grip the bar, but this dude told me to have both palms facing me. What's the difference between the two and which one is better. This guy was pretty broly by the way so I'm assuming his way is better.:dunno:

    Just because some one is "really broly" doesn't make his way better.

    The reason people have different grips all comes down to comfort.

    He's right, but in this case he was asking a legitimate question.

    Work a double overhand type grip (snatch grip) until it gets too heavy. This is very good for strengthening your grip. For really heavy sets, the mixed grip works fine. Double underhand has been known to cause bicep tears when going really heavy. Then theres also the hook grip........

    Snatch Grip isn't the same as double overhand, and you wouldn't use a double underhand on deadlifts

    ?

    Snatch grip is a double overhand. I don't use a superfuckingultrawide grip for snatches.

    Lots of people use double underhand for heavy rack pulls.

    A snatch grip is wider then a normal, arms hanging at your sides, width double overhand grip. If your snatch grip is not wider then say your C&J grip then either your physiology is really abnormal or you are doing it wrong.

    Yea, I had to switch because a mixed grip was killing me elbows.

    Short arms. I'll smack myself in the melon with the bar if I go any wider.

    :rofl: so how wide is your snatch grip? Your arms must be uber shot because my elbow clears the top of my head or I have orangutan arms....

    Double overhand = the most common. You should try to use this until you can't hold onto the bar any more. It will improve your grip and improve your forearms too.

    Mixed grip = easier to hold onto heavier weights. It also helps to stop the bar slipping or rotating in your hand.

    Double underhand = I hate it, and I've heard that it's easier to tear your biceps holding it like this.

    Hook grip = Double overhand but your thumb is on the same side of the bar as your fingers. Some people find it painful. It's pretty easy for me and I can hold a lot of weight that way.

    I use alternating grip for everything except rack pulls, which I usually use straps for
