    Kettlebell Bent press working on one side but ...

    Don't know if anyone else has had this issue, but I'm sure there are some of you. When doing the bent press, I have no issue with one side but I cannot, for the life of me, seem to get the mechanics worked out on the other side. Short of having to seek out an SFG, anybody have recommendations or...

    Kettlebell Bent press as mobility drill

    Hi all, I've been having some shoulder issues, and my physical therapist found that I have limited shoulder rotation (dont know how the describe it so I posted a photo below). I basically can't open my forearm to the side if my elbow is next to the ribs. I have noted that this is an...

  4. Kettlebell Enjoying Snatches and Bentpresses

    So I have been trying out snatching and bent-pressing, but not RSAS as I am still far from the required strength requirement of simple. But what I can say is I'm enjoying snatching and Bent pressing. I havent timed myself on my lifts but on weekdays I snatch my 20kgs and on Sundays I snatch my...
  5. Kettlebell Bent press instead of TGU

    Hello friends, I it okay if I substitute the bent press for the TGU? I want to incorporate S&S into my clean and pressing routine, but I do not have enough flooor space to do getups. will it be a good substitute? Thankyou very much!
  6. Kettlebell Double KB press to get stronger single arm press

    Hello Everyone, I would just like to get your thoughts my idea that if I get stronger in double kb presses that I might get stronger in my single arm press. I recently bought a 32kg and my friend gave me his 24kg so now I have double 24kgs. I am not able to overhead press the 32kg but I am able...
  7. Kettlebell Sots Press as Accessory to Bent Press?

    Hello everyone, I am nearing the end of a program that I wrote to get back to lifting after a couple of months of being sick. The program I am going to finish is inspired by Strength Aerobics: clean, press, and front squat. It has worked fairly well but I feel like I want to change my focus for...
  8. Kettlebell Program minimum/maximum standards for Bent Press

    Hello. I'm just wondering about minimum/maximum benchmark standards for the bent press, comparable to Simple and Sinister standards for TGU.

    Kettlebell Bent Press to Strict Press Ratio

    Hey everyone, I am just reaching out to see if anyone has come across or would share their own max bent press to max strict press weights. I understand that the bent press should be the press used for most weight overhead. For me it is about even with 40kg. I can do more with dynamic...
  10. Kettlebell Joy and the Bent Press

    Hello all. I just wanted to share the joy I had from bent pressing the 32kg straight out of the box not very impressive by any means, but it's personally the most weight I've had over head with one arm also wanted to share this resource from Dave Whitley, because I have not seen it on the...
  11. Kettlebell BENT PRESS. HELP! from 48kg to a next size kettlebell

    Hi everyone, I'm Luca. I need a program to increase my bent-press. I weigh 58 kg, I am able to perform the Bent-press with 48kg. I would like to try one with a heavier kettlebell (52 or 56 kg). Does anyone know an effective program?
  12. Kettlebell Bent press/side press question

    I was speaking with someone recently about how I was looking to learn the bent press & side press, and they commented that I would be better off just doing windmills and military presses because the bent press and side press are a case of "half-a#@" movements. Is there any truth to that, or was...

    Kettlebell Snatches sets/rep equivalent to 10x10 of swings

    I am thinking about idea of mixing exercises from Simple & Sinister (Swing & TGU) and old Program Minimum (Snatch & BP) into a "park bench" program between more intensive cycles. It's from Program Minimum [Squared] but I would like to program it more like S&S. The idea is to do these trainings...

    Barbell Bent Press before or after Deadlift?

    I've never trained heavy Bent Press and heavy Deadlift during the same training session before. It just never occurred to me. They're both hip hinges so I'm thinking I'll give it a try for a while. My Deadlift/Bent Press session will happen twice a week one week, and then once the following...

    Kettlebell Moving from KB Bent Press to dumbbell to barbell?

    I've been Bent Pressing as a kind of "side project" to my main goals about twice a week with low volume. I feel like it's enjoyable accessory work to my Get Ups, Deadlifts and Squats. I'm at the happy dilemma of having surpassed my heaviest KB so I moved on to fixed dumbbells at my local gym. I...

    Kettlebell Bent Press critique

    Just began playing around with this movement. Looking for any helpful tips on technique and/or how you program the bent press into your training. ***I had just finished my workout, showered, and was ready to head out the door with the wife, hence the jeans and boots*** Also, while I am...

    Kettlebell Bent press recovery

    I have been training the bent press for a few months. I have Dave Whitley's book "Taming the Bent Press" and am working the programs and progressions. It is becoming my favourite lifts because of the strenght and mobility achieved, and happiness from lifting heavy stuff over head. Which bent...
