    Default Press half body weight or do ladders?

    At the end of ETK, do people generally press their half body or work up to 5x5 ladders with half body weight?

    I'd have to press the beast, and I'm wondering if I should save up, or stick with a few stacked presses. If everything goes smoothly this is probably 6 -12 months away for me, but I'm just curious. After ETK I'd like to get into ROTK.

    Edit: I'm aware that a single press is required, just wondering if people generally do more than that.

    It's a single press & don't forget the 200 snatches in 10 mins with the 24kg.

    I'm in the same boat with having to press the beast to pass.

    Thanks Jason... I'm aware that a single press is required, just curious if people generally take it further and do ladders or not. I guess I'd like to know if that's a realistic goal or not.

    Good luck on pressing the beast!

    I haven't forgotten about the snatches, still working on those too.

    The goal is to simply press half your body weight for a single rep with each arm and complete the ssst. I say if you are able to knock out more reps with the beast...more power to you. How is your progression so far.

    I'm definitely getting ahead of myself a bit... I'm still working on the 32kg, getting close to 5x5 ladders. I have been able to add a ladder a week, starting with 24, then 28 and now 32kg on the ETK plan.

    I have have pressed 36kg for 5 reps, 40kg for one rep.

    I have a 36kg at home, I'm looking into purchasing a 40, and looking into my options from there.

    The goals to pass the ROP may be to pass the SSST and do only one BW press, but hell, once you have your foot in the door like that....

    .... might as well walk into the room.

    That seems to be what Bud Jeffries and David Whitley are doing these days
