Peter, 1000 push ups in 30 minutes isn't a "strength" session.

Strength-Endurance, maybe, maybe just endurance specific to the push up movement.

I've done similar levels of tonnage in the past...for example, 10x10 with 345 in the squat (34500 lbs of volume) followed by 5x10 in the SLDL with 315 (~16000 more lbs of volume) that absolutely floored me.

Now I am really of the opinion that frequency and quality is more important than overall volume, but volume can be a very useful and easily manipulated variable, and I would use the old method of "as often as you can, as heavy as you can, as fresh as you can" as a good way to bust a plateau.
