I am 8 weeks out from a meet and entering my peak soon. I have been using mixed grip, but lately started experimenting with hook grip. Honestly, hook grip gives me a smoother starting position, while I always seem a little off balance with alternate grip.
Some people say don’t change your grip stance this close out to a meet, but what do you guys recommend? Stick with mixed, or start using hook grip now?
If its recommended to stick with alternate grip, any tips to help achieve a better balanced starting position. It always feels like my legs favour one side over the other with alternate grip.
