Is it really that bad to use a mixed grip? In Dissecting the Deadlift, the author states that it shouldn't be used unless you're lifting world record weights.
The thing is, I'm pretty new to deadlifting(done it twice) but my max with a double over-hand is 305, and my max with a mixed grip is 355.
In this case, wouldn't it be better for me to lift with a mixed grip and do heavy grip work in order to even out my grip strength? My legs/back really aren't stimulated at all with a double overhand...should I just work on it?
