    I wouldn't mind switching back to the mixed grip, i broke a strap once in mid deadlift at 405lb and it put me out of deadlifting for 6 months.

    Yeah, mixed grip?

    You don't think over time (years) that it could cause "un-even" growth if you don't change hand placement now and then?

    Yes, the steeper incline will make you work harder thus raising your heart rate.
    The only problem I've had in the past with running hills is shin splints so watch out for that.

    The only thing I don't like about doing single leg work is that by the time you get to the second leg, your ready to die.
