We are doing presses with a bamboo bar and suspended kettlebells. You would not believe how hard the bamboo bar makes the movement especially with the suspended kettlebells!

Travis Bell is the camera guy. :)

Looked like you had a lot of fun:clap:

I keep seeing more videos of lifters using kettlebells. Could someone explain some of the benefits of bench pressing with kettlebells & results too? I would like to add this Max Effort exercise to my own routine.

Thanks a lot,

JT, the suspended kettlebells are to make the weight shaky, and to work the stabilizers. you can also suspend plates as well, you can quadruple minis and hang 25 lb plates, that seems to work for me. i've never used kettlebells on suspended weight bench, but most of the time i see people using them.

i like doing them for higher reps...i messed my shoulder up doing triples with heavy suspended weight.

try it, its fun, and a great exercise. there is a video somewhere out there with Jay Fry doing a ton of weight, with the same setup Chris is using there.

its so that Lou can cane you if you miss a set LOL


Its something that we typically use as a deload workout, although to be honest I haven't used it in quite some time. It works your stabilizers really well while not putting very much weight in your hands.

Here is Justin doing a set. He is a very strong raw presser and I think his video shows how wild the exercise can be, especially on the 2nd to last rep.

You guys inspired me, keith, and rusty to do these. We only did it with a regular bar and two 25's hanging off each side by purple bands. It was ridiculous the amount of shaking the first few sets. After a couple sets we started to tighten up and get control of the bar. I'll post our videos soon.

I have done it that way as well. That is very good, but man, that bamboo bar and the multiple kettlebells takes it to a whole other level, trust me.

I could barely hold 100 lbs suspended above my face it was so damn wobbly.
