hiya. sorry if this isn't quite the appropriate forum for this question, but you guys are my best hope of getting a timely answer. today coach burgener has specified a kb snatch + ohs + sotts press routine. if using dumbells, should this be done with one or two hands at a time? any ideas?

I did a sotts press in my wu this morning w/pvc pipe and 10# weights at each end and that was enough weight for me. Of course that was the first time I did it. I think I am going to inc. them more into my wu's..

Sean I would say using db's on sotts press I would have 1 in each hand and go at it. I used the pvc pipe..

good luck..

One hand at a time... power sn, squat-sit at the bottom-do a press, stand up with arm locked out overhead, lower the wt and repeat for 5 reps then switch hands.

Kevin the weights just sat about 1 ft from each end of the pvc pipe. The pvc pipe is 7ft long like oly bar. The weight is not heavy so its easy to balance the pipe while doing the sotts press. I didnt try the bar thinking that might be to heavy so I made do with what I had.

hey josh, thanks for straightening me out on this. i did it with two dumbbells--it was amazingly hard. the other day i was doing OHS with 115 lbs, going all the way down, and today i was having trouble balancing 15 lbs in each hand!

2 db's would be a great workout as well. You would have to be really flexible to pull it off. 1 db allows you to compensate for tight shoulders by twisting or leaning to the side.
