32kg military press

Posted in: Sport

Pood Press
32kg (70+lb) standing a.k.a. military press, baby

At last, this solid goal achieved. Single rep, barely completed. But completed! God I love being a meathead. Such simple pleasures in life :-)

Bit of background: this is a tough move. Not only is a 32kg kettlebell awkward due to its off-centre handle, it's laterally off-centre to boot. If that wasn't enough, it's a standing press rather than the wussy seated version (with its nice comfy back rest, piped music, and saunas 'n smoothies for afters). So it additionally requires solid core and leg stability too.

More to the point, I've worked pretty hard to get to this weight, and here I am goddammit! Stoked!

Now, if I could only do this with my left arm...

Well done mate..I am 52 and 135lb and have been training for the first time ever for about 2 month. I have a chin up bar and from only being able to do 4 I can now do 20 proper ones! All the way down and all the way up.

I am well chuffed, but I am stuck on 20.

Keep up the good work mate.
