If this has already been asked/posted, my apologies - I do try not to post 100% unnecessary crap.

I'm at the stage, again, where deadlifts will have to - for the time being *at least* - be either over/under (aka mixed grip) or "strapped".

Which do you recommend of those two, and is there any advantage to alternating mixed grip (LURO/LORU), if that is the best way to go for now?

I have not got around to using straps so far, or a belt for that matter. But I'm not at all opposed to the idea (even though awesome grip strength does appeal...) I actually own both, so yeah.

Thanks again for helping so many people (I am of course one of them). Hope this is *not* an unnecessary question or whatever.
