The reason I love Kettlebell Sport so much is because it’s continuously providing me with new goals that motivate me to train consistently and efficiently. I’m always racing to beat the clock, to hit that higher number of reps.
While I realize not everyone is interested in competing with kettlebells, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the same training modality and repetition-based motivation (provided you have a solid foundation of technique, of course).
Therefore, this week’s training is a Kettlebell Sport-inspired repetition challenge: hit 200 reps of the kettlebell Snatch! To make this friendly to all levels of kettlebell enthusiasts, you can switch anytime you want and even set the kettlebell down. The goal is simply to complete the 200 reps as quickly as possible – with good technique and visible fixation.
When you’ve done the challenge, let me know your completion time by tagging me in your post!
“Slow snatch” = 5 second hold at the bottom, 5 second hold at the top every repetition
We are getting Kettlebell Sport specific today. That means, training the kettlebell snatch for endurance! If you’ve never done a 10 minute snatch set, a “slow snatch” set is the perfect way to start. If you HAVE done a 10 minute snatch set before, a “slow snatch” set is the perfect way to test a heavier weight than you normally lift.
And if you hate snatching slow, guess what? You get to sprint it out with some speed snatches at the end of the workout. Plus I threw some farmer walks in there for good measure to make sure your forearms are totally smoked!
