I could tell from the angle, but it looks like you may have been using a power grip/alternating grip. I recommend using a double overhand grip as your primary grip, and switch to the power grip only after the double overhand fails (typically @ 90-100% 1RM).
yeah i was using alternate, probably unnecessarily at 165. i'll keep the double overhand still that fails
