  1. ROP “GED” & Strict Press Form

    I’ve been struggling w/ progressing on pressing this 24kg after doing S+J gtg style. It feels like I never really retain the gains from one week to another & “own the weight”. I previously pressed this weight for a 3RM last week fairly easily—this week I’m experiencing the same bad form I...

    Best way to improve my press

    I've been doing S&S, and I'm at the point of timeless 24kg. No catchy name for that, I know it's where many of you started. I'm 47yo man, under 130 pounds, without natural strength, and with less than a year of strength training, mainly with kettlebells (no barbells at all). I think it would be...
  3. S&S + Press

    Hi SF community. I would like to pick your brains on how pressing could be best incorporated along S&S. I had been on S&S for over a year and after doing some tests I realized my press is worse than I expected. Doing get ups with 32 and 40kg I could only press 24kg for a 2RM. I pressed a 28kg...
  4. Is it necessary to press

    If your training heavy snatches is it necessary to do any other pressing? I can’t think what muscles would be trained by a press that aren’t trained by the 3 TSC lifts given the snatches are heavy enough.
  5. ROP but with a barbell for two sessions

    Can I still expect results if I substitute two of the press ladder sessions for the same rep/sets but with a barbell thats double my kettlebell weight? For example Monday (heavy day); 24kg bell, 5 x (1,2,3,4) Wednesday (light day); 50kg bar, 5 x (1,2) Friday (medium day); 50kg bar; 5 x...

  8. Neck Development

    Hello Friends, This question is both aesthetic and performance related. Will kettlebell lifts like the Clean and Press, Bent press...well pressing in general, help develop a muscular/defined neck? Or do I need to address it directly by performing neck bridges or plate loaded neck extensions...
  9. C&P: stretch shortening cycle

    I'm wondering about whether/when to employ a stretch shortening cycle during a clean and press. I'm not a particularly advanced trainee, with my 1RM C&P at 24kg, but my proprioception is pretty good. With strict presses on my 40 lb bell, I have about a 7 RM, but if I do C&P with a technique...
  10. Barbell Overhead Press form

    Hello all, I have a question about the overhead pressing form used in the StrongFirst Barbell curriculum. My barbell training was done by Starting Strength certified trainers. The Starting Strength barbell press actually starts with a forward hip thrust to trigger a reaction in the kinetic...
  11. Initiating The Press

    Hello Friends, It seems that my pressing pattern is off, and I cant initiate the press properly with a 32kg. I mean I cannot press it yet but I can atleast budge it 1 inch off the rack. I think I can get away with poor techniqur in lighter bells like a 24kg, but the 32kg is totally destroying...
  12. Double kettlebell burned me out

    I did double kettlebell squats and double kettlebell presses, and I felt like I got hit by a bus on my 3rd set of 5 reps. Why are double kettlebell lifts so taxing? Even compared to a barbell, double kettlebells are taxing like hell. Why does it burn out my system so much?
  13. Upper body involvement in the snatch

    How do snatches compare to pull ups in terms of upper body muscles involved? Would the press and snatch be sufficient for upper body or is it necessary to do pull ups? In the Viking warrior conditioning program he includes the snatch, press, pull up and pistol but won’t this lead to over...

    Press to Front Squat Ratio?

    Press to squat ratio? I was wondering what the right balance of 2KB presses to 2KB front squats with a given pair of kettlebells should be to have balanced strength. The reason I'm asking is that the heaviest pair of doubles I have are 24kg and I want to identify weaknesses/imbalances. When I...

    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...

    Iron Tamer on the "Natural Press"

    I thought this was worth sharing: Dave Whitley and Bud Jeffries propose a press continuum: Strict Press (body stays still, weight moves) <----> Bent Press (weight stays still, body moves) Somewhere inbetween is the side press. The natural press would then be your strongest press route, like...

    Daily Dose Double Press

    I am thinking about putting my pressing on some park bench program / maintenance during the next couple of months where I would focus on other lifts (squat/deadlift). Most of you know the "daily dose press" plan created by @Steve Freides based on Daily Dose Deadlift template. Do you think that...

    Strength Standards

    Beyond things like "Simple", "Solid", "Sinister", "Beast Tamer", "Iron Maiden", and the SFG I & II technique standards, are there any more formalized strength standards for kettlebell exercises? What comes to mind for me is something like these: Weightlifting Performance Standards for the...

    Programming snatch for TSC

    Hello everyone, I am thinking about starting a program where I would be able to prepare for TSC while improving my double press. It would consist of these elements: Double Press twice a week (KB Strong template) Pull Ups every other day (FPP template) Snatch twice a week Deadlift once a week...

    Clean and Press Tips

    Hello Everybody, I wanted to start a thread on some clean and press or military press tips. Something that has helped me was kicking my hip over a little to get under the bell. Something else was remembering that the clean sets the tone for the press. If your clean is messy, you can expect...
