Does "Wagon Wheel" signify something different about this Appollon's Axle deadlift than any other in grip sport?  I mean, I am envisioning a 19th-century wagon wheel as the weight, but of course there must be variation in weight and all, so I am not sure what this would mean.  Is it a higher starting position because of a bigger plate?

Oh wow - so it is a higher starting point, so I guess the opposite of a deficit lift.  Hope to get out there sometime - probably won't be next month for me but you are becoming THE grip destination of the West Coast and I really want to get out there for one of your comps.

Plan to come out to the LAFITEXPO in January
