Deadlift - 345lbs

I had actually only planned to do my previous PB twice to work on my grip, but thought I should try more weight.

I did 175 lbs for 8 reps on Barbell Push Press yesterday. I'm thinking of trying 185 lbs for 8 reps next week.

The grip I use on Military/Push Presses has my thumbs touching the smooth part of the bar ..... the same width some of the guys on this sight use for Close-grip Bench Presses.

Barbell Push Press = 215 lbs for 3 reps :-)

That's 6 lbs less than bodyweight (221 lbs). I just weighed myself.

Since I've decided to track a list of nine I'm going to repost my current levels in all of them. My pr in bench press is new, as of today!

DB Military press - 65lbs (each hand)
Weighted dips - 45lbs
Bench press - 260lbs
Sna+OHSQ - 0lbs (I'm not giving myself credit for it until I perform it, I think I have done 65lbs before but now I'm serious about it, watch for this to go up)
Everythings - CaJ + FrSQ + FullSQ - 135lbs
Weighted pullups - 60lbs
Squat - 315
Deadlift - 345lbs
Cable row - 200lbs

Straight back straight leg is just straight leg without rounding the back at all. Romanian is when your knees move.

Are you sure your not thinking of Stiff-knee Deadlifts?

Just to clarify what an RDL is,
http://jva.ontariostrongman.ca/RL.htm
The key points are in the article. Depending on your fleibility, the knees may or may not move. Very similar but not quite identical to the SLDL. It's mostly used by OL types, as it teaches the flexibility and positioning use during the first pull of the clean or snatch.

That's pretty much it. I keep my knees straight but not locked throughout the lift. Also, I don't stand on anything for this exercise (I stop just short of the plates touching the floor).

If legs are straight, it's straight leg. If knees are bent but don't move it is stiff leg. If the knees move it's Romanian. Otherwise it would be the same as a stiff leg. Of course someone else said Romanian just means you start from the top after pulling off a rack. That when you do that rather then pulling from the floor, it is Romanian style no matter what kind of dead lift it is. To me it seems like they are all very minor variations and should work the same muscles.

I wonder if there is a definitive guide. I'm kind of confused. Maybe they are all the same and some people just do them different.
