    I don't think it really matters. I'd likely just do them after deads b/c you'd already have the bar loaded. :) I'm lazy like that though.

    There is a lot of good advice here already.

    I think you need to really think about where you are putting the bar in your hand. It needs to be low in your palm, so your wrist doesn't bend back.
