I finally brought my phone to the gym per Jeremy’s request to document my current squat and deadlift levels.  The form in there isn’t great but it isn’t horrid either.  There is a reason you don’t see many giraffes squatting and deadlifting after all.  I tried a hook grip for the first time with my 225 lb deadlift.  The grip felt secure, unfortunately it also felt like a great way to rip the skin off my thumb.
