    Just a thought. Why not as was said earlier, move some stuff so that you are getting concentration on the certain muscles rather than throwing full body each time out? Like, go chest/bi's monday, back/tri's wednesday, legs/shoulders friday. I say that, since you'll have direct impact exercises hitting the muscles plus you'll have the non-direct impact on the other days so you're muscles won't be "forgotten" on the other days. I do a similar routine to what I suggested, but I lift 4-5 times weekly on the average, so I hit them alittle more often. Just a suggestion. Otherwise, keep it up!

    Sounds like you'd lack stability. The ROM would be jacked too since one arm would bend one way and the other the opposite almost. Should leave the altered grip to deadlifts IMO.
