Pressing two 16 kg. kettlebells in one hand... finally.

I've been working on this for a while, and today they finally went up. Pressing two 16 kg. kettlebells in one hand isn't like pressing a 32 kg. I'm guessing more like a 36 kg. My pressing strength is finally increasing, and I'm going to say I hit a strict military press of the 40 kg. by April 1st.
April fool's day. :)


  1. Hey Jordan, nice work mate. I just pulled the same feat myself last week and it really surprised me as I've been hammering away on 20kg for some time. Like an eejit I promptly grabbed 2 20s and had a pop at chance.

    Looking forward to the news letter. All the best,

  2. I would definitely hit the 20 and 16 first, that's what I'll be aiming for. Again, with the instability factor added in it's probably closer to a 38 or 40 kilo.

  3. Thanks Franz.
    Max, you are correct. It went up pretty easily. I don't think I have long to the 16 and 20.

  4. It looks like you had plenty to spare for multiple reps. Nice strict press .. superb!

    And a big time congratulations to your engagement to Vanessa! She's beautiful!

  5. Thanks Nikki.
    Franklin, I had to lock her down so there would be no escape.

  6. Had to try it and was successful. Will post video today.
