    Default Now this is a cool feeling...

    5X5 ladders C&P with the 24K. Time to buy the 32! This is the best feeling of accomplishment that I've had yet with the KBs. Been following ROP for a little bit now and it really works! I'll say though I was damn glad I rolled a 7 for the swings instead of an 11 or 12 after hitting 150 C&Ps.

    Just for the record, I take 45 seconds between rungs and 3 minutes between ladders.

    I can't wait to see the look on the UPS guy's face when he delivers my next bell

    Chris, Congratulations! That is a great feeling. Be proud of what you've accomplished. Ease into that 32. It's a whole different ball game. While you're waiting for that to arrive, start practicing the Bottoms Up Press with the 16 and 24. It'll really help dial in the form for the extra 8kg...

    Are you going to go to the 28kg next or jump right into the 32kg?I'm doing my ladders with the 32kg now and it was a big difference going from the 28 to the 32.

    I already put the order in for the 32 .

    I pondered that for a moment but it really comes down to $. Every one of these bigger bells is a pretty serious investment for me so I really look at the "classic" progression of 16 to 24 to 32 to 40 to (God Willing) the 48.

    I expect it to be rough. But I also know that I will find valuable guidance here on the forum and with an RKC to offer advice and training solutions.

    I did the same thing, although I think it's probably a smoother transition if you get the 'in-between' bell, you'll be fine with the 32. It'll just bit a bit more challenging to begin with, but who doesn't relish a challenge around here?! Great work, keep it up!

    I relish a challenge! Chris, I'm maybe two weeks out from a 5x5 at 16kg, and my next bell sitting in the corner is a 24kg. I've already pressed the 24kg with one arm and 20kg with the other, so I have some corrections and overloads to do for a season. Bottom-ups and waiters, shoulder mobility improvements, the usual stuff. It was just a huge feeling that first time I hoisted the big one into the rack and actually pushed it up. Nothing else like that.

    [SIZE=2] My thread "Guest User? Really" prompted some 6 pages of discussion on why Pavel's user account had been changed to "Guest User" status. John Du Cane answered in a forthright manner, and I thanked him for his professionalism in this very forum.

    That entire thread was removed from the forum on or around August 26. I've been an HKC and an active, outspoken member in good standing for some 3yrs now, but I don't support this sort of censorship. Look for me on the public web.

    Could you purchase a 12Kg to allow you to stack press two bells at a time to hit the in-between sizes?

    This is a general question I guess as I've been considering doing the same myself to save the $ in the long run.
