Thumbless Grip Sqautting?

Today I was squatting and had some wrist pain, so i switched to a thumbless grip and it felt pretty good. I compete in the CPU which follows IPF rules, so I was trying to find out if thumbless grip squatting is allowed. I looked at the IPF rulebook under squatting and couldn't really find the...

Choosing Between Conventional and Sumo

Hi everyone, I have been training sumo deadlift exclusively over the past few months. By looking at me, one would probably assume that my build is better suited for conventional. My question is, how can you accurately test which one you are stronger at. For example, do you work up to a max in one...

Deadlifting and Bar Knurling

Recently my gym opened a new location. They got new bars and the knurling is very aggressive. It is good for grip, but I have noticed the knurling in the center is getting caught on whatever bottoms I wear and pulling the bar up at the lockout is rough. It really becomes an issue the closer I get...

Stiff legged instead of conventional deadlifts (Candito's workouts)

Greetings I have been working out for about 1 year, making some decent progress (Squat 265lbs x 6 reps @158lbs, 174cm). My deadlift is at the same strength levels, without much difference compared to the squat. The thing is that Stiff legged deadlifts, to me, feel far more natural and I just...

Arrow Can this be considered a slight pause? Hit a 330lb bench yesterday

I realize I should've paused it a bit longer, it wasn't until after I looked at the footage that I saw the pause was quite short. It was a clean lift however, and a big PR still. VID sr3PguWy76s
