Yesterday was the first time I tried mixed grip deadlifts. I tried them for my last set, which was also my heaviest set. It was the first time I ever did 295 x 5 (not much I know). I did 285 x 5 last week with a both hands overhand grip, and I felt my grip starting to slip. That's why I decided to switch to mixed grip yesterday. I felt harderto do them with mixed grip. Does anyone else think that mixed grip deads feel awkward? Also, I used my right hand (dominant hand), as the hand that had the palm rotated away from me.
