What is a man to do when he has a cold and there is rain and lightning outside? Easy: go out back for some kettlebell pressing.
This is a bottoms up press with a 40kg (88lbs) kettlebell. I had planned on banging this out around mid-April. It’s not the smoothest press I’ve ever done, but I hurried so that I could escape the electrocutive wrath of the gods.
For anyone who likes to press or is working on it, I recommend bottoms up pressing as soon as you can handle it (you’ll know). This develops tremendous pressing power. It also requires some pretty intense grip strength, so don’t worry if you find you need to start light.
I’ll be able to knock out the 48k kettlebell sooner rather than later, and that’s what’s up next. If you need a kettlebell, grab one in The Store.
Now how about you? Before you know it, two months of 2010 will be gone. How are your goals progressing?
