Training for the Snatch Test & RKC
I have called upon the readers in the Diesel Universe for my Muscle-up training in the past, and now I have another favor to ask.
In September, Smitty and I are going to an RKC certification, and we will be doing the 100-rep Snatch Test.
Before last week, I never did more than like 20 snatches total in the same day, so this is all completely foreign to me, so i was wondering if some of you would take the time to watch a couple of the videos I have taken of myself trying the Snatch Test.
If you have time to watch, and leave any suggestions you have in the comments section, I would really appreciate it.
This is my very first set trying the snatch test. I got 68 reps. I did not count one of them because I partially snatched it with both hands. I must have miss-counted when I first reviewed the video because I say 13 reps on the last set but I actually got 18.
I really thought I’d get much more than 68 on my first set, but I was taking too much rest time during repetitions, I think.
Rep Pattern: L25, R25, L18
I took about 15 minutes rest and tried one more set. This time I made quicker transitions between reps and got 80 reps. Lost a rep on a flubbed transition and had to do a short swing. Definitely need to avoid that on test day.
Rep Patter: L20, R20, L15, R15, L10
Like I said in the video, my form is rough and I am SO not in shape for this. I was really huffing and puffing on this day. I am more used to Juggling Kettlebells and doing other Feats with them
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.
Make it a great day!
P.S. To all you Steel Benders – I just started working on a project today that is going to help you out tremendously. Stay Tuned for further announcements.
