    Coach, my double overhand grip taps out at ~280lb before i need to switch to hookgrip. My workset is currently in the low 400's also hookgrip. Should i be worried about the dbl overhand grip strength, just seems a bit weak to me. Or will it still continue to increase as my DL with hookgrip increases.

    Doesn't matter. Maybe you have short fingers/fat hands. But your grip strength will increase as the weight on the bar goes up.

    That caused me to get out the ruler. I easily have 2 or 3 millimeters on that measurement!
