If you are a competitor, only switch up your over/under if you feel they are comparable. If one side feels awkward, you could end up tweaking your back. If they feel ok, then alternate every other workout if you'd like.
my take is, its important to swop from time to time... no matter how straight you have your arms, the bar torques the body differently, and you end up possibly with an imbalance....... I do all my warmups for reps one way, then swop at 405lbs for the rest; so far, so good.
