Haha! I'm just trying reach a satisfactory weight and get to where many of you guys are. I've been a vagina for years......scared of the dead lift, so I avoided it like the plague (..but I attacked the squat ferociously). Now that I've placed focus on it, I absolutely love the movement and get riddled with anxiety until I can dead lift again. Now I have to wait until next Monday. I feel like I'm progressing pretty well, but I think a lot of that is attributed to my squat.

I can only do 2 sets max of my 90% 1RM range... the dizziness and fatigue start to set in way too much after that point, and it just feels wrong.
I've tried the overhand grip and the alternating grip, but I've decided to stick with overhand - despite prefering the feel of OH/UH - to protect from potential bicep tears once the weight gets heavy. As of right now my grip is still strong at 300 lbs., so I won't pull out the straps............yet!
