Single kettlebell push-presses are what i mesnt, yes. I currently own one of each 20k, 24k, 28k, 32K, 36k & 40k. Thanks very much for the reply.Sure, I think so.
When I was prepping for this event last weekend (CrossFit style "Grace", then 3RM DL, then "Murph"), all my training was AGT, as designed by my coach @randyh . Paces reps/min for the Grace C&J. Run/walk for the running volume. Shorts sets of pull-ups, push-ups, air squats for the Murph rounds with timed rest, staying away from the burn. The most volume I did in training for Murph was about half of the event volume.
Not only did I complete everything, and did better than expected on time, I was hardly sore the next day, and I was back to weightlifting training the day after that, while my other event-mates say they can barely move their arms and are still recovering. AGT works! I will write a longer post about it when I get some event photos.
As for push-press, if your objective is to build strength and power, I'm thinking use 70-80% of your 1RM and 3-5 sets of 3-5 reps, ~3 minutes of rest between them as a basic template. You posted in kettlebell, so I assume single or double kettlebell? I'm sure there are some good kettlebell programs that use push press...
You might also consider the Viking Push Press (VPP), at least for specialized variety.Single kettlebell push-presses are what i mesnt, yes. I currently own one of each 20k, 24k, 28k, 32K, 36k & 40k. Thanks very much for the reply.
Yes it is mentioned in Q&D and I actually threw in 3 rounds of the VPP just this week. I like it and will continue to do it for variety.You might also consider the Viking Push Press (VPP), at least for specialized variety.
This is a variation where you do not rest in the rack, but use the catching at the bottom for driving it up again immdediately.
