    The Training Yard: Where We Get Our Learn On

    Chalk is your friend. Also, rather than a picture, video is more helpful and easier. You can then upload it to youtube and trim/edit it. I don't know about alternating grip, but on double overhang grip for deadlifts, I have to make sure I touch the bar first with the palmar digital crease first and then wrap my fingers. That keeps the pads at the top of the palm above the bar. If I'm going lift deadlifts or pendlay rows, I touch with the distal palmar crease first which puts the pads a little under the bar. On the lighter loads, the bar won't shift at all so this the natural position. On the heavy deadlifts, the bar will shift a bit into my fingers which would shear load the pads if they were below the bar. My point being how you grab the bar can impact how the load is going to push on the skin.

    Cursed by your own excellence! Maybe turn Commonwealths into the kickoff for the 2017 SS World Tour? All it takes is to go win the lottery or something.

    Maybe pencil it in for next year? I know my interest is piqued. Full disclosure, my mom lives outside of Atlanta so I could make a week long trip of it - visit mom, go to Atlanta Barbell, and go to camp.

    But let's be honest. You never really left. You just made all the warriors frequent another sub forum.

    Fast forward to 8 minutes for great justice.

    Ok, that's a valid idea. If I build a deadlift platform, I could buy 2 of those and screw them to the platform. I'll keep those in mind. Thanks! Then again, I could probably do the same with a couple of strips of wood and a stop. Still a good idea.

    Quick/Easy question: How do you put the plates on your heavy deadlifts? I know there are bar jacks that you can lift the bar with, but I don't have one. It doesn't matter much at the moment, but I'd like to hear any different methods. If I had to now, I would probably put the bar on some automotive jack stands and lever it over onto the floor. It's not an elegant solution. Also, once I'm done lifting, it's not readily reversible to unracking the weights. I'd have to pick one end up at a time back onto the stands. Maybe I need to build a bar jack.

    I would typically not combine the weight but clarify that it was a paired weight. For instance, if I was logging/writing it down, I might have OHP: 5x(2x30) meaning 5 reps with 2 dumbbells at 30# each. In conversation, I would pluralize the number "dumbbell overhead press, 5 reps with thirties". A lot of exercises you would do with a pair of dumbbells can be split into one side of a time to incorporate some stabilizing - ie. dumbbell chest press can become piston press.
