    How do you guys get your DL and squats higher? What type of excersices do you do to pick out and strenghten specific parts of the lift? I know of one for dead lifting. Lifting off a platform so the weight still rests on the ground but your standing higher. I heard it is supposed to help with the the first part of the pull. I'm looking for a site/book/any resource that can show you how to train specific parts of a lift.

    For example, my dead lift has been stuck for a while. The first 1/3rd of the lift I feel is hurting me more than the rest and if I could strenghten that I could move up in weight a little. I do them every week but I feel like I'm getting stuck only at a certian part of the lift and it's holding me back.

    My grip too. My fucking grip... it has to be hurting and I dont want gay crunkers or anything, there has to be a real excersice to work on gripping strenght so my grip wont feel so taxed.

    .... don't gay up my thread, it's a serious question.

    Use chalk if you have grip issues.

    jesus... crunking is one of the best things for you if your grip sucks.

    do shit to work your posterior chain - pullthroughs, good mornings, GHRs, RH's, 45* Back Raises, learn to properly box squat. Pull from a deficit, squat heavy - no high rep shit.

    I don't think crunking will help you hold on to the bar any better. Crushing grip != supporting grip.

    At least thats my experience with it. I can hold a lot more weight than some people who crunk more than I do.
