    could be a number of things. one, your right side could be weaker. two, you're imbalanced or footing may be wrong, which leads into number three, your form is wrong.

    Is your grip symmetrical on the bar?

    Chalk up and switch up. The sooner you start doing it, the easier it will be to learn. Also, do as much as you can with overhand grip.

    I used to have the same problem. For me it was form, which I thought was dead on (I was wrong). Once I fixed my form, the problem went away. I also think it may be because you are new. Your right/Left leg may be stronger from lack of training, and as such, your body tilts when lifting.
