Nothing stupid about strength endurance. Did you time yourself to see how long it took you?

Just be careful on hills and uneven surfaces. When I was a kid, my grandfather broke his leg pushing a wheelbarrow when he slipped going downhill and tipped it.

PS.) When no one heard him shouting, he decided to crawl to the hospital at the end of the street. He got about 200 yards before someone picked him up and drove him to the ER. Maybe that's where I get my high pain tolerance from.

Straight-leg Deadlift = 315 lbs for 3 reps (02/16/07)

I could have done more reps, but me grip gave out after the third.

I also did Overhead Squats on Friday, going up to 2 sets of 5 reps with 135 lbs. I don't know if that's good or not, but I was pretty happy with it, since it was the first time I've ever done overhead squats with any weight.

I've been on a bit of a 1arm dumbell lift rage as of late and hit a couple of new pr's:

200lb, 2" handle 1 arm deadlift left hand, 202.5lb right hand.

120lb regular handle 1 arm power snatch right and left hand each.

95lb 2" handle 1 arm power snatch left and 100lb right hand (attempted 2.5 lbs heavier with each hand, but 2" handle kept slipping away).

One-arm Power Snatch ... is that with a dumbbell or a barbell?

Also, I assume the one arm deadlifts were done suitcase style with a barbell. Is this correct?

Matt,

All lifts done with dumbell.

Yes - 1 hand deadlift done suitcase style.

I should clarify for all interested - my dumbells are custom dumbells i made myself. They are 30" long and i have sleeves of various diameter AND lengths to vary the handle-type as i see fit. The basic configurations are as follows:

1", 2" and 2.5" sleeve diameters, each in lengths of 6", 12", 18". i also have 3" diameter sleeves in 6" lengths only.

In the case of the pr's listed in my previous post, i used the sleeve diameters listed in 6" lengths.

Unfortunately, the dumbbells in my gym only go up to 85 lbs each. This is why I originally started doing One-arm Dumbbell Presses. I was using 85 lb dumbbells for Seated Dumbbell Presses and needed a way to increase the difficulty without increasing the weight.

I attempted 315 lbs for one rep, but needed a finger-tip assist to get past the sticking point.
