    Boy oh boy... hit the 'wall' 2/3rds of the way thru and weighed myself. I've lost close to 10lbs on the 'virus diet'.

    to 320-kilos x 6 reps

    15p x 12 easy reps, stack x 12 r/p reps (H) and stack x 10 r/p reps (H)

    One hand deadlifts
    to 140-kilos x f/1 and 1/f. Called it a day

    Years old stuff. In fact over 100 I think. From what used to be called 'odd lifts'. BWLA used to (about 20+ years back) still list them in thier records. The IAWA still does. It's considered a test of hand strength hence my using it.

    Was the UK grip champ if my memory serves me correctly. 

    I have done one arm deads before but my god they are hard to master. Grip is the biggest problem, luckily for you!

    A two hand pinch sounds like some kind of lethal attack you would inflict on someone!
