[quote="omar tan"]I see that everybody uses mixed grip, according to Wikkipedia it's to balance the bar from rolling our of your hands.
Wouldn't it be better to use overhand grip and just get stronger and/or develop the strength to stabilise the bar instead?
Also, if you're usingmixed grip should you alternate which hand is overhand between sets to balance or doesn't matter?
It's better to use double overhand but no way you can pull as much this way as with mixed or hook grip. Grip will become a limiting factor on DO, which is ok if you're not wanting to shift big(ger) weights. I do it up to a certain point, but generally switch to hook from about 75% of my max weight. Position your body is in with hooked/DO grip is better than when using mixed imo. Yeah, best to switch it up if you are using mixed, but one way will usually be stronger than the other, and use this for the all out lifts I'd say.
