Most people will struggle with double overhand beyond a certain point. I can't deadlift more than 315 with DOH. It's ok to use, but if the bar starts slipping during reps you need to switch. You do not want to injure your back when deadlifting due to a rolling bar.


Some people will tell you to stick with a DOH to improve your grip strength. I am not a fan. You deadlift to improve the deadlift, not to improve your grip strength. Use it, but when it runs it's course, set it aside.
