Even though I haven't been dead lifting, I've trained my back much more than the average guy, including plenty of heavy rows and pull/chinups, so upper back strength for me is definitely a non-issue.
Made me think about my wife's grip issues while deadlifting. She is very "back weak". She despises back work.

Sharing all you experiences above has really meant alot to me. Thank you.


You should always take pride in hard work.
