I still have shoulder flexibility issues to work through so my wrists still aren't straight but I noticed that still going thumbless seems to ease the wrist/elbow pain from the load.
I am the same, I do ROM exersizes with bands twice a day to improve my shoulder flexibility and range of motion, as I am extremely tight as it is even with wrists pretty bent holding the bar. The thumbless grip is something I might like to work into however, Thanks OP, I had never really looked much into this.
