Kettlebell Military press with step loading?

I know ROP is the recommended pressing program, but I know I will have weeks where I can only get a couple of training sessions done in one week. I have really enjoyed S&S with it’s flexibility, so I wonder if there is a way to do similar program with the press... ? I just finished soju & tuba with 24kg, and I think my current max is 5 reps with it. (Haven’t tested yet.. )

So at the moment 5 x 3 per arm is a nice medium session that doesn’t make me sore and I can go play golf after it etc. and recover fine.
What if I did 5 x 3 session 2-3 times a week for awhile, then add fourth rep to second set (3, 4, 3, 3, 3), stay with that for awhile, add fourth rep to third set etc. until I’m doing 5 x 5. Then maybe start soju & tuba followed by the same progression with a 28kg…

What do you think? Or is there some other program with step loading I could follow?

Give the Total Tension complex a run, train 3x a week, plenty of pressing, leaves plenty in the tank for the rest of the week?

2nd for Total Tension. It boosted my numbers a lot. Thinking about even doing it again because I want to go from 2x28s to 2x32s and I'm sure it will get me there.

Hello,

RoP ladders with HSPUs. For the leg portion, I'd do pistols and some HS plank / hollow rock for core.

Kind regards,

My first thoughts are the Fighter Pullup Revisited but I can see why the S&S step progression might offer a more gradual benefit.

Asking about using step loading with presses because need for flexibility and time concerns. Get thrown a handful of other training programs and no awnsers to the question. Gotta Love The internet😄

I see no reason for it not to work. I have never tried it. Give it a shot and become n=1.

I had very good luck with greasing the groove.
It's not completely dissimilar from soju and tuba, and it resembles some ideas in justa's singles.

5 or less reps as many sets as you can every hour on the hour.

When I started , I was only able to do a few singles per day with the 32kg bell I had just received . Then doubles. Then triples. And per pavel I stopped at fives to only train strength, not something else . After a few months I was up to 50 reps a day or so - 25 per arm. And it prepped me to be able to press the 40kg. I can currently press the 40kg for 6 reps as a strength test. But some days only 4 . But since gtg is not currently accessible because I'm not working at home, I'm doing 1 set of 5s with the 40k and sets of 5 with the 32kg till they slow down, if I have time.
