I’m new at single-arm lifts and wonder what my levels of strength are relative to my bodyweight. I’m reading “Dinosaur Training”, by Kubik and have started incorporating alot of single-arm lifts including, single-arm snatches w/ both dumbbells and barbells, single-arm barbell deadlifts, single-leg overhead barbell squats, and turkish get-ups with a barbell. I’ve also been doing some specialized grip work as Kubik suggests, and my grip strength is definitely increasing. I get all kinds of looks when I’m doing some of these lifts, but I have to say that these lifts are helping me develop overall strength, especially for the grip. Anyways, how do these numbers stack up for an average guy like me.
Single-Arm DB Snatch, 85lb DB(2x), 75lb BB(2x)
Single-Arm BB Deadlift, 145lb
Single-Leg Overhead BB Squat, 30lb.'s(3x)
Turkish Get-Up w/ BB, 75lb.'s
I’m still working on the single-leg squat/box jumps.
