Double KB bodyweight clean and press.

Does anybody know of a program/article/book directed at achieving this standard?

Thank you
Daniel
This is one of the standards set in return of the kettlebell...

If I may ask.. what size bells would those be for you and what pair of bells can you press for 5-7 reps at present??

Hello Mark, thanks for answering.

I have ROTKB, the volume honestly seems to high for me and I have no interest in eating as much as the program suggest.

I weigh 80 kg, I have double 40's and all the pairs under that in 4 kg increments. I have actually pressed them a couple of years ago once. But I had a bout with appendicitis (surgery) and a back injury since and am working back up. I have recently pressed my 32's for sets of 5, pressed single 36 for sets of 3 on both arms and hit a single with the 40 on the right. The left arm is the issue once I get above double 32's.

Thanks for your time.
Daniel

Ok so that's great since we now have metrics...

Can you snatch double 32s??

I've honestly never done a double snatch. I haven't snatched at all regularly in years. Although I've snatched above BW on a barbell years ago, and I have snatched single a single 32 for reps in the past. I can try and get back to you .
If it helps I jerked double 36's for triples yesterday, not easy but no press out in most of them.

Thanks for your time.

Ok that's more data to work with..

Have you considered reaching out to an instructor for more in-depth coaching since to be honest, attaining a bodyweight overhead press regardless of implement is a degree of specialization for most
