Personally, I would stick with jerks for the whole programme and then rerun from the start with push press or presses.Just some advice please, male 56, 240 pounds. Slightly experienced with kettlebells (did the sfg1 course etc.). I am just not strong enough for my taste, so I started doing KB Strong! with double 28's on the phase 1 slow n steady. A real challenge/ rather too heavy for me at the start in all honesty so according to Geoffs email advice I jerked them to start (clean and jerk = long cycle). Now I am onto push pressing them on my 10x2 sets fairly comfortably as the weight feels lighter and I am strong enough to press out to the top.
Any good reason to stay with jerks or push presses or should I just strict press when it becomes possible. For instance, I could probably bang the sets out with less rest if I jerk them. Next session is 8x3's so it is still early.
thanks in advance.
Otherwise you're adding in a further variable and the rate of progress will be higher than written.
