After doing a few weeks of a press routine based on Mark Reikind's triple progression (very good program by the way) I have moved on to Tuba and Soju to continue with press training. I do a press on the right and on the left and then take a 3 minute or so break. My press 1RM is 40kg and I am using the 36kg for T and S. As the reps have climbed (today was 14 singles each side), I have found that doing 10 two handed swings in the 3 minute interval with the kettle bell I am pressing really helps the next set of presses. If I don't do those swings, when I do the next set of presses it is harder to generate the tension needed in my abdomen to do the press. Why is this? I only started doing the swings for something to do to fill in the long rests but, far from impeding my recovery between sets, they seem to be helping.
