Nothing but Snatches....ok, and a few swings!

8:00am Bikram yoga
1:00 KB snatch workout
4:30 1 hour walk

KB Snatch workout

10 swing/snatch/ transfer warm up
x 2 = 20 snatches

30/30 2 minutes 15 sec., 1 min rest
x 2 = 120 snatches

I didn't have my groove yet to haul ass and get this done within 2 minutes! I hadn't snatched this kind of volume per arm before switching, in I can't remember when, and I was only able to do 2 sets before dividing the set in two, still 30 reps per arm, but with the rest period inbetween.

30 L, 1 min work, 1 min rest
30 R, 1 min work, 1 min rest
x 3 sets each = 180 snatches

My grip just barely hung on during the last 5 reps, so keeping up the 30 reps per minute pace I switched arms in the middle.

15/15, 1 min. work, 1 min rest
x 7 sets = 210 snatches

I didn't plan such an "uneven" number of sets, but my right hand gave out at this pace. I finished the workout with five, 2 minute long, snatch/transfer sets.

30 snatch/transfers, 2 min work, 1 min rest (15 snatches per arm)
x 5 sets = 150 snatches

Total snatches 680

I HAVE to recalculate my snatch points, I have no idea where I am in this race, but it doesn't matter because I'll just keep on snatching, lol!

Wow, 30/min is, if I remember rightly, 3 more than your 'normal' pace... that's a lot!

My endurance pace is 10/10, so 20 per min., at that pace I could go for an hour, I have no doubt. But the 12/12, or 24 per min. I've done 15 min before having to slow down, I don't know if I pushed it, really tested it, how long it could be before I had to stop.

Of course you served the inspiration for 30's, and it really kicked me butt, but it was my grip on the last 5 reps, each side, that couldn't go the distance.

Also, I have been working with someone in preparation for the LA cert, and we I tested her that afternoon....she had to snatch 54 reps with one hand switch...I hadn't done that in a long time, so after she left I had to snatch!

I need to train with you! I really need to work on my form for endurance snatching. Keep up the awesome pace! Maybe someday I'll get there...
