The Grip and Heavy Deadlifts


New member
Currently doing Pttp. My question for any expert on DLs is about the change in the grip when the weight gets to be HEAVY. At the start of the program the grip is solid and strong - with the fingers and thumb strongly and solidly locked around the bar and white knuckling it all the way for 5 reps. As the weight gets heavier the first indication of any perceived weakness is the slight loss of grip integrity as the bar slips ever so slightly - still the bar is supported by the hands. Question: Should I continue to increase the weight as long as I can do the required reps even though the grip has loosened? Or should I go back in weight/reps and have my grip "catch up" with the rest of me in the Deadlift?...Dennis
