Yep, keeping those triceps extended is the best way to avoid a torn bicep with a supinated grip but overriding that instinct and trying to curl the bar by utilising the bicep sometimes gets the better of a lifter.

I ruptured my distal tendon on Nov. 16th on my 3rd deadlift attempt. Surgery on 11/26. I did a ton of research - necessity being the mother of just about everything - and I'll use the hook grip from now on.

I wouldn't mind hearing more opinions on the subject really. I'd like to jump on board with what's already given, but I can't just yet.
That echoes my experience. I pull with the left as under hand, and right trap seems more powerful. Slightly similar with the lower back as well - I can feel an imbalance there too.

To be honest, shock horror for most other competitive powerlifters but I always use straps and pull double overhand for reps and train my grip separately. I feel get the best strength gains this way and my dead is by far my best lift in competition.
