I understand you probably have no resources right now, so you work with a dumbbell instead of barbells, but SS is a Barbell training program. The moment you change barbell with a dumbbell, the program is not SS. I would recommend to leave risky, jerky movements with dumbbells, and until you can get a hold of a decent barbell, stick with basic dumbbell ...

Here is one exercise : Begin standing with a dumbbell in each hand with your feet shoulder width apart. Lower the weights to the floor by flexing at the hips and knees, pushing your hips back until the dumbbells reach the floor. This will be your starting position. To initiate the movement, violently jump upward by extending the hips, knees, and ankles to ...

I tend to descend to the left a little bit as well. Conscious effort to fix the form in a complex movement and then adding weight on top of that will probably not help the problem. I personally have found that too much conscious effort can be effective if you know for sure that you are hitting the right muscle groups because it forces them to work harder ...

Under standing circumstances I would say look at your posture, if you're naturally inclined to a more donald-duck-like posture (your but sticking out) you should squeeze your glutes and thus facillitate backwards tilting of the pelvis. When you're more of a pink-panther-type (your but tucking under) you should stick your but out more, ?squeezing your lower ...

So I believe it depends on your progression. When you just start training there is really no need for a mixed grip until you can deadlift with good form and reach heavier weigths. However doing mixed grip only on really heavy sets (>90% of 1RM) can result in injury due to not getting used to mixed grip. So training it is important. Handeling really heavy ...

My Recommendation I advocate deadlifting with a double overhand with no hook grip for as many warm-up sets as possible, in order to develop grip strength. For heavy warm-ups and work sets, I think a hook grip with chalk is the best way to develop grip while still moving heavy weights. I don't use the mixed grip, and would only advocate it for PR attempts ...

Grip depends on so many factors, but I prefer overhand grip for both. Mixed grip is great if you want to lift more, but if you rely on it, it promotes various muscle imbalances.
