Hook Grip Deadlifts

Trying something different. My training needs some restructuring and today I had some fun with it.

Light Stretching.
Over Hand Deadlifts - 5 sets/6, 8, 6, 8, 6 reps/225lbs, Singles - 245, 275, 315, 365, miss 385lbs.

At this point I figure I'll give Hook Grip a try even though I didn't think I was capable of it.

Hook Grip Deadlift - Singles - 365, 385, 405lbs.

OUCH!!! These hurt the thumbs. In fact, they are still numb and slightly throbbing. I said they hurt but I kinda like it. It's very satisfying.
