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 […]
