I have just recently started doing deadlifts and I have been pondering this for a while now. I'm sure I might just be over analyzing this but I wanted to get some opinions. I'm mainly talking to the bodybuilders out there. Do you pull with an alternating grip or a hook grip (both hands over). The reason I ask is because I wonder if it works your back differently depending on how you grip the bar. So in other words I wonder if an overhand grip works your back differently than an underhand grip, leading to imbalances. Just something I've been thinking about. I can easily pull all my weights with an alternating grip but with a hook grip requires wraps, limiting the work on my forearms. I guess I could alternate which hand is over and which is under from week to week, but only one way feels natural, but I guess it's something I would get use to. Just want some ideas. Thanks guys, sorry about the long post.
