Hi masa! I'm doing fine, thanks. My training, so so. I had two very good weeks that I had to spend on board a Russian ship and was very lucky to find a 32 kg kb on board. A gift from strength gods. But then I came back home and things got difficult again. I have been working too much, up to 300 hs a month, so I have decided to quit my job. I will be unemployed, but at least I'll have time to train
I agree, I think it is a good idea. Maybe I dont have to go as heavy as 40, nor do too many reps, nor do it every day. But I will do at least 1 rep with 40 a few times a week for sure to see how it goes.I don't think it would necessarily be a bad idea to implement the heavier bell that way.
The old weights really get a lot easier to lift after getting new heavier lifts. That's why I always tell people to do heavy singles, here and at the gym, that even if they're not chasing PRs, their regular training will feel so much easier after having a taste of the heavier weight.
And it doesn't have to always be that much heavier, especially relatively taken some really small increments will do. The kettlebell is a bit lacking in that way, as the jumps are typically so large.
