    who does em? I tried them today for the first time.

    I did them at the end of my routine which went as follows

    chest/back

    pre-exhaust: 3 sets of 15 on pec deck :o

    superset: flat bench (db) 4 sets of 12-15 & wide chins 4 sets of 8

    Superset: incline (bb) 4 sets of 12-15 & CG T-bar rows

    Superset: dips4 sets of 8 & cable flys 4 sets of 6-8

    wide grip deads: 3 sets of 5 w/315. Tried 405 last set, failed.


    Now, I feel it in my rear delts traps and the top of the outside lat. I think I'm going to add these every so often. I was curious as to who else has done these regularly and what results you've seen.

    Also, how wide are you going? I gripped about 3 inches to the end.

    Yep. If your arms extended out to your sides parallel with the floor, your grip width should be roughly where your elbows would be.

    yea bro. A snatch grip is wide. I grab it at the edge of the knurling on a standard bar.

    if you want to rape your grip try snatch grip RDLs... basically like a timed hold plus the trap burn.

    I enjoy this lift a lot. I never used straps so my best is only 365x3 before my grip failed. I'm actually planning on doing them this week. I try to grip somewhere outside the rings which is pretty wide with the bars at my gym.

    Could this also apply to rack pulls? I might give it a try tonight.

    The whole point of a wide grip deadlift is to increase ROM especially at the bottom. Since you grip wider your torso has to start at a lower position.
