On Monday morning I continued my quest toward my Holy Grail of kettlbell training: 200 snatches in 10 minutes or less. Here’s what I did this time: As many sets as possible of:
Five kettlebell snatches – Left
Five kettlebell snatches – Right
I shortened up the reps this time to see how long I could go with minimal rest. It was a telling assessment, as I did four sets, (40 snatches), three sets (30 snatches) and three sets (30 snatches). I snuck in a couple more on each side (4 snatches) for a total of 104 in five minutes. I was a bit disappointed as I could have gone harder; I rested probably more than I needed to. But regardless, it was interesting to net approximately the same number of reps with shorter sets. I really lose time when changing hands and resting. I still have a long way to go.
After resting for a couple of hours, I did 10 rounds of the following for some strength work with slow, controlled reps:
Good stuff. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
