I also used to use "powerlifting" but when I say that people think I'm competing.

@DaveLiepmann thanks. I had "lifting heavy" in originally but the tag wiki says weightlifting is "Resistance training with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells and other weights. Questions involving how to lift and maximizing lifting performance. Includes powerlifting, bodybuilding and Olympic lifting." so I thought I could use weightlifting as an all-encompassing term.

comment In double overhand grip for the deadlift, do the fingertips touch the palm?
Huh, that's interesting. I didn't know mixed grip is bad. Which is recommended?

comment How to improve my weight loss efforts?
While I agree that calorie intake needs to be reduced, I would not go so far as to say that paleo and calorie restrictions are mutually exclusive. Many people have been successful on a low carbohydrate diet, myself included. I find that eating fewer carbs has stabilised my appetite and allows me to not just think about food all day even while reducing calories.

This comes down to a physics question really, it's about the distribution of force on your skin.
