185 left arm.
got the versa grip and did 225 with right arm
275 with left arm was a tough one, i knew it was going to be close.
315 with right arm, couldn't lock out.
I thought about going for it one more time, but really it would have been the same result.

Here's video evidence that i couldn't do it.
One Arm Deadlift Failure - 315lbs - YouTube

So this wasn't as heavy as I expected.
I just did heavy deadlifts yesterday so I'm probably not at full strength.
If i worked at this for a little while I think I could do it, no problem.
I don't plan to though.

So, I failed and we know Brute can do it.
Now what?
That was damn close though. nice work brother.
