Now, about your deadlift. Do you use chalk? That helps with the calluses.


I've never used chalk, just a mixed grip from 120 up. never had this happen before but I did seek out the new bars in the gym with very rough gnarling which is probably the reason.
I definitely recommend using chalk. You don't need a lot of it, and I've purchased some chalk balls at sporting goods stores that work really well. Our gym doesn't allow chalk, because too many people scatter it around like fairy dust and never clean up after themselves. But I can get away with using these chalk balls because I just rub what I need on my hands without making the mess, and the only chalk left over is on the bar.

Went and got some cheap straps so i can max out the full body side of the DL. 2*5*150 and 1*4*160. Still doing sets to 120 regular grip amd no straps. Happy with the feeling of being used up all over.

Have you considered using a hooked grip for deadlifts? Its an option that will allow you to continue to use a double-overhand grip, and should put off the use of straps, as well.
