Using double overhand grip.
I am noticing as failure approaches my grip goes first, when that happens my shoulders want to roll forward which begins disengaging my back/lats. As soon as I feel that happening I stop cause I only want to count clean form reps.
I have considered resetting my form 2-3sec (retighten back and posterior) and go for more reps. I have also considered using a hook grip. I do not want to use a mixed grip.
Should I just keep stopping at grip failure? Do a form reset and see what happens? Or use a hook grip?
My gut says to stop at grip failure (and to stop drinking beer).
