32KG baby is on it's way...

Thank you everyone for help, support and comradery!
After starting up 7 months ago Steve Cotter's DVDs with 20KG and rolling back to a 16KG in a few weeks, I finaly grew to a pair of 24KG in a last 2 months...
Long story short - ordered first 32KG for a single presses and swings, so excited and a little scared remebering myself about 20 years ago looking with fear at the guys pressing 24KG more than once...
Is it a too fast for an average 175 5'11" guy?

i think pressing the 32kg for someone your size is studly, but not unheard of. If I am not mistaken, Pam is hitting reps with the 28kg in regular training.

Thanks, Jason.
Pam's results are impressive for sure, but I was looking for an advice how not to hurt myself with progression acceleration.
Should I keep concentrating on my 24KG high reps and add a little of 32KG once in a while, or just dive in?

Re: 32KG baby is on it's way...

the smartest thing to do would be to work with a 28kg.

think about it, 8 kgs is a 25-33% increase in intensity depending on how you do the math.

Barring that, try exercises that make the 24kg more difficult, such as disadvantageous grips and leverages.

This is covered extensively in the RKC books. Which are W/F safe!
