Hinted at this one a little last week - then after a few more conversations with folks realized that I likely need to have another post really giving the ways that this kind of workout can be useful especially for those who are preparing to pass the RKC Snatch test. It solves just one piece of the puzzle but there are several important pieces that must be in place to … [Read more...] about Advanced Kettlebell Challenge Workout For 1/12/2020
Couldn't resist using this neat photo of the pyramid at the Louvre.

It works well for people who are fairly close in athletic abilities, but it is super easy to adapt it for very advanced or intermediate partner possibilities.
