So there are 2 ways to do deads.
Feet about shoulder width with your hands outside your legs, or feet farther apart with your hands inside your legs.
Is one way more beneficial than the other? Does one way put more stress on certain areas than the other?
My reason for asking is two fold: 1.) I'm curious, and 2.) On my last deadlift day, I did 5x10 with 225 and the next day my hips hurt pretty bad. I've never had this happen before. BTW, I do wider feet, with my hands inside my legs.
Also, when doing deads and squats my toes are always pointed outward, about 45*. Is this proper or not?
Any advice here?
