What is the proper form? Overhand or underhand grip? Legs shoulder widthor wider with toes pointed out? Hands/arms betwwen legs or on the outside of the legs? Do you lift with the legs or back?

I do rack deads strictly for lat-lowback thickness. Overhand grip. Hands kind of close shoulder width inside legs, legs still not very wide. Mixed grip can develop an imbalance; underhand puts alot of stress on the bocep insertion attachment.

Use a double overhand grip and straps if you need them. I pull conventional and the only time I use the over/under grip is at a contest.

i use straps, and an overhanded grip. I used to do reverse grip and as I increased the weight, the potential for injury was becoming apparent. The most important thing you could ever remember doing deadlfits is to USE YOUR LEGS! Also pull it from the floor. (real men only) Deadlifts are by far the best movement for thickness PERIOD!

I agree with using an overhand grip and straps WHEN you need them (meaning the warm-up/lighter sets go without), but as the weight gets heavier you do not want to be limited by the forearms as a weak-link.
Also, a big change I made when switching from "touch and go" reps to "full reset", meaning in between each rep the weight is completely at rest on the floor BUT I keep tight for the next rep. This works so much harder do to no momentum.

I USE THE DOUBLE OVER HAND GRIP....

....I WANT EQUAL DEVELOPMENT. I HAVE FRIENDS WHO USE THE OFFSET GRIP AND THEY END UP WITH ONE TRAP WITH UNEVEN DEVELOPMENT. I USE STRAPS ON THE HEAVY SETS AND GO FROM THE FLOOR. I WOULDN'T USE A SUMO STANCE....UNLESS YOU'VE GOT A FUNKY STRUCTURE AND COULD LIFT MORE AT A POWERLIFTING MEET. FOR BODYBUILDING PURPOSES...USE THE HANDS OUTSIDE THE QUADS, SHOULDER WIDTH STANCE. MY OPINION.

I agree, Overhand Grip, Back Straight not hunched over, feet shoulder width and definately use legs.

By far the Best exercise for overall thickness!

I used to do Reverse Grip as well, now my right Bicep is paying the price.

My best as far as reps is 405 x18 (about 4 yrs ago)

have done 495 x 8 (2 sets)

My best was 605 x 3

I stick to 405 now though for about 8- 12 reps, and I do deads once or twice a month

The strongest person I have ever seen on deadlifts is Deadlift1k
PERIOD!

I have seen this guy deadlift 7 plates on each side (675 lbs) for 6 reps,
and 725lbs for 5!

strong as a motherfucker in legs too

I do every-other workout, I get the variety that way. It also allows me to keep as much "distance" as possible between heavy squat days and heavy deadlift days so that neither suffer.

I agree once or twice a month, every other week for me was rough. But everyone is different. I would also concentrate on form rather than weight. pulling something in your lower back is not fun.


Oh! and 725lbs, that was a long time ago. 495lbs will do the job for me know.

later

As for grips, I use overhand on all but my heaviest set. Then I do alternating grip but switch the hand I do under with each time. Hopefully this counters whatever imbalance might occur.

I do them once/week but alternate weeks are heavy and lighter.
