    Case of Xenoglossy: Coma Victim Wakes Speaking French

    I'm one of those people. I recently started learning Swedish and it didn't take long at all for me to get fluent in the course material. I also once picked up Italian to the point where I could haggle in the markets after only a few days of being there

    It's called alternate grip :D There's 3 grip styles for deadlift, double over hand which unless you're a strongman competitor is the weakest, then hook grip which involves trapping your thumb between bar and fingers but is really strong, and alternate, which is just as strong and stops the bar...
