Yesterday I met my friend that I haven't seen for couple of months. She told me that I'm look 'bigger and chubbier'. I like the first comment, but chubbier? maybe I eat too much, haha. I'm still wearing my belt using the same hole though.

I always use a double-overhand grip in deadlift. It's stated in SS that I(novice) should be able to deadlift with a double-overhand grip (for a few months). Although I know really know the missing reps come from my grip or not, I think it is time now to change to use an alternate grip in thew work set. Any comment?
