So there I was feeling a bit smug being able to deadlift about 50kg's worth of bar + plates. And then I realized that all this while I've been using the reverse grip rather than the ideal double overhand grip. Ideal, because it is also the grip that a lot of people are weakest at. So the logic is: the more you improve on your double overhand grip, the stronger you'll get.
I'll try to improve on my grip strength. It is my weakest link anyway.
On another note... I've stopped doing barbell benchpress for now and switched to dumbbell benchpress. I need to get back to basics. Something tells me I'm doing something wrong.
