Heavy press issue: Advice needed


New member
I just got a 32kg kettlebell up from the 24kg. I seem to be able to press it overhead with my left non-dominant arm, but not my right. I am able to press the 24k 10 consecutive reps either arm. I do have a mild trap injury on my right side currently, maybe that is contributing. I also get a sharp pain in a tendon in my right elbow occassionally, which goes away usually with rest and only shows up if I do a lot of pressing. Perhaps indicating a tendon injury that is contributing to the difference. Its also possible I have asymmetrical fatigue from jiu jitsu. Anyway I want to address the strength imbalance. I am wondering if I should:

1. Take a long rest and see if corrects the issue.
2. Do jerks on my right side until I can strict press ( assuming this is possible to bridge the gap this way)
3. Revert back to the 24k bell and try to build strength through more volume at the lighter weight.

I am also open to other ideas and all advice appreciated.
