    "Lockout problems arise at lighter weights on snatch-grip deadlifts than they do on deadlifts, because the snatch grip makes the lift significantly harder and more likely to show thoracic flexion. The bar has to travel further up the legs and into the hips, thus requiring a longer range of motion for the spinal erectors to stabilize."

    Great article. What are the general guidelines for selecting a grip width for these?

    Thanks,

    Use your snatch grip. As mentioned in the article see Starting Strength. You can also review the snatch tutorials we've posted over the years on this site.

    The programming template given is an HLM type. Would the snatch grip deadlift work well as a volume day pull in TM style programming?

    For example
    VD: Snatch Grip DL - 3x5
    LD: Chins / Rows
    ID: Deadlift - 1 - 5 RM
