Assessment and Mis-Matched Kettlebell Fun

After writing a blog post about how I will no longer try to weigh in at 123.5lbs for the 12kg kettlebell when performing the RKC kettlebell snatch test, I figured it was a good time to see where I stood with the 16kg test.

Start with joint mobility of course -

Open ended fun time - 100 snatches with a 16kg to "see what happens" and how long it takes

Mis-matched kettlebell decending ladders (didn't feel like going to the storage closet for the other 16kg kettlebell and braving the weather/mosquito attack) - I used one 12kg and one 16kg, adjust the sizes to suit your level, this wasn't meant to be an especially difficult workout, I just wanted to do something after the snatches.  Use only the strictest of form, rest as needed, preferably minimally:

Descending Military Press Ladder:

Descending Front Squat Ladder (same structure as above, substitute strict front squats)

Convict Conditioning full bridge practice, joint mobility, random dancing around because I liked a song that was playing, and strategy session on how to train to do that whole "if you can do 40 TRX Atomic Push Ups and 40 TRX Low Rows at a convention, we will give you a free one" thing, because I want another one for my small group class - winning one is more fun than buying one.  See how much I love my clients?!
