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.
This sounds silly - but everytime i try and use straps.. i spend so much time trying to wrap them, i stand up and get light headed and need to stop the operation. LOL.

edit: I also feel much stronger over under for some reason... but i spose i can try and go back to double over.. I was switching the hands around for light sets and warmups so that things kinda balanced. However I def can lift more L hand over / R hand under for some odd reason.
