    Deadlift Grip






    http://www.gymaddiction.com/exercises/lowerback.html

    I just read at this website that the best grip to use when doing deadlifts is overhand. It also said that if you must use an alternated grip you should switch it up. Whats you guy's opinion of this? I've never switched grip, its always left underhand right overhand.

    If you are using a mixed grip you definitely need to alternate after each set to avoid imbalances. I prefer to use a double overhand grip for this reason.

    Searching is your friend.

    Anyway, overhand, or hook grip is ideal, but can be difficult to use a higher weight until your grip strength gets better... Switching hands if you're using a mixed grip is a good idea.

    I only do DOH, I have a certain goal of doing DOH and when I reach that I may switch it up.
