Beast Snatch Test 5 Minutes

I’ve gotten back to weightlifting, taking a break from the “predominately bodyweight training” I’d been doing for awhile. Much of what I’m doing involves kettlebells, to help prepare and learn new things to teach at the upcoming Kettlebell Workshop in Sacramento, CA on June 15th.
