Workout 19 July 2011

After a light warm-up, I did the 5:00 RKC snatch test with a 12-kg kettlebell. I reached 100 with nearly 30 seconds left. That was a great feeling. Now to lose these stubborn 5 or so pounds so I am light enough to pass my test with that weight!

After that I did 2-arm swings with a 16kg for 1:00, 4 times. Then I started counting reps and alternating between the 16 and 24kg kettlebells. I'm training with heavier weights in case I have to use the 16kg for the test.

The format was 20 reps with the 24kg followed by 40 reps with the 16kg, with recovery between each set. Talk about brutal!! I repeated it 20, 40, 20, 40, 20, 40, 20 to get to 200. I have no idea how many I did in the minute-long sets earlier, but it's safe to say I'm doing an insane number of swings these days.
