That's interesting. Kettle bells always look incredibly difficult to me, but then I have no experience of them. I bet there aren't many gyms have 45kg KBs.

I've been thinking about this and I don't believe I've ever got close to this (not that I've tried). I've clean and strict pressed 100kg (220) on a bar for several reps, but I don't think that this equates to two 50kg bells, or even two 40 kg bells. Seated press might be a different matter.

For those who have done 45 kg one handed, I'd be interested to know how this compares.

Edit to add: There are some really strong pressers on MAB who I reckon could do this comfortably. I reckon Miked96 could knock out some reps, for example.
