I told him I wanted to use a double overhand grip at first so that wouldn’t work. His response was ‘I’m a level 4 PT, been doing it 8 years and you should NEVER use that grip’. Please can get some suitably educated responses so I can get him to put his hand in his pocket.
    I mentioned starting strength LP, to which he acknowledged it and knew what I was talking about, but still dismissed my request.

    Cheers.
    Just tell him you're a level 8 half-elf rogue with max dex. Then go find another gym.

    Preferably a gym that allows you to multiclass into barbarian. Advantage on strength checks while raging will really drive and sustain your progress.
