    Either way is fine. I use a mixed grip. One hand in, one hand out, and rotate between sets.

    It helps with grip at higher weights. If your grip is giving you problems, and your back is still ready to pull, then switch it over. For me, I like to switch it at the heaviest, but keep it regular on my higher rep sets.

    Say I was doing a deadlift workout..

    135 x 8
    205 x 8
    225 x 6
    255 x 3
    then i switch to mixed grip
    275 x 3
    300 x 3
