More Kettlebells Snatches… in bunches!


Wanted to check my endurance on KB Snatches using a 25# bell.

Warmup:

Brisk walk down/up 5 floors of stairs.

Halo, 25# x 5/side;

Swing, 1-handed, 25# x 15/side;

High Pulls, 25# x 5/side x 2 sets

Workout:
KB Snatch, 25#  x 15/side, 60 second rest;
KB Snatch, 25# x 15/side, 60 second rest;
KB Snatch, 25# x 10/side, 60 second rest;
KB Snatch, 25# x 15/side.

Total: 100 Snatches!!

My forearms started cramping in the last set despite trying to loosen my grip.  This also cause me to bang my forearms on the final set.  Also, my arms aren’t coming back even with my ear, so I still need to work on flexibility in my shoulders.  All in All, I wasn’t too winded at the end, but I could tell I’d done a few reps… and could have left a sweat angel on the carpet.

Probably need to hold off trying any snatches for a few days or more…. not sure what kind of overuse injuries I could develop as I increase reps, but don’t want to find out the hard way either.
