    Best overall kettlebell strength lift

    If you could choose one exercise to develop strength with a kettlebell, what would it be and why? I would lean towards the snatch due to the full body nature of it and specifically how it strengthens the grip, posterior chain, and shoulders. I know it’s a ballistic which isn’t ideal as a pure...

    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...
