Quitting the Beast Snatch

Well, I don’t quite look at it that way. Instead, I am switching gears. For years, I’ve pursued the Beast Snatch Test, where I aimed to do 100 snatches in 10 minutes with a 48kg or 106 lb. kettlebell. I’m setting aside this goal…for now. I don’t see this as a failure, just something I […]

Knocked the Snot Out of Me

The progress on the beast snatch challenge continues… Just finished a workout where I did 120 snatches in ten minutes with the 40kg. or 88lb. kettlebell. That one was tough! And I’ve noticed something interesting that happens with a tough workout, whether it’s snatches or otherwise. I temporarily have allergies. My eyes itch. I sneeze […]

Heavy Kettlebell Swings for Ab Work

Late last year I purchased a 60kg kettlebell. That’s 132 lbs., so it’s a big one. Part of this was to see what I could do with it. But mostly, it was so that using it for a few exercises it would make the 48kg seem lighter.  The beast would no longer be the “heavy […]

Single Snatch Set of PRs

When you have a goal, you generally cannot pursue it in a straight line. If it’s a big goal, it’ll need to be aimed at through several paths. This is true in training as well as much else. One of the ways that I’m pursuing my beast snatch test goal, is through different versions of […]

The 50% Workout

As you know if you’ve been paying attention I’m working on my goal of 100 snatches with the 48kg or 106 lb. kettlebell in 10 minutes. When I first imagined undertaking this goal I thought it would be a little bit easier than it has turned out. This isn’t the first time I underestimated a […]

Double Kettlebell Snatch x 100

Whew! This one was tough… 100 double snatches with the 24kg kettlebells. Although the same amount of “work” as the 150 reps with double 16 kg’s, this was harder. It is also the same amount of “work” as my goal of of 100 reps in the single snatch with the 48kg kettlebell. Work, in this […]

More Progress on the Beast Snatch

In a recent workout I went for a PR towards my goal of 100 reps with the 48kg kettlebell. My goal here was 80 and although it was a struggle I hit it. (My previous record was 70.) A key in doing the kettlebell snatch or any endurance set is the right kind of pacing. […]

Double Kettlebell Snatch

I haven’t shared too much of my training lately because it’s pretty boring from the outside. By that I mean it’s quite repetitive. I’m doing very similar things from day to day, but always progressing from one workout to the next. My priority in training is reaching my Beast Snatch goal. Right along with that […]

Unable to Lift My Arm to 100’s Overhead with Ease

If you’ve been around for half a year or more you might recall that last year on Thanksgiving I hurt my shoulder pretty bad in a game of football. As much as I work to be indestructible, heavy collisional forces can only be withstood so much. I couldn’t lift my arm even to parallel. And […]

Splits distance

PR Report 1-18-14

This one is much the same as last week’s. I’m really only working on three things right now: splits, one arm chins and kettlebell snatches. In the past, I, and many others have written about training the full body, the moves you should do, etc. Like doing an upper body push and pull, squats and […]
