Yoana and I are going to assist in June at the RKC, so I wanted to test myself and make sure I could pass the sntach test. Requirements for my weight (170 pounds) are to perform a total of 52 reps, both arms combined.
Today I did the following:
Left arm = 30 reps
Right arm - 33 reps
Overall it was not too taxing. What fatigued the most was my right wrist and forearm. Started to lose control of my right hand so I stopped. For sure could have gotten 40 with my right. I need to start foam rolling my right forearm and getting some NMT on all flexors, extensors, sub-scap, pecs and lats.
Ready for the June RKC!
Also, I tested future Revolution Trainer John Vandenbrink. At 6 foot 8, he brings some interesting technique modifications into the picture. He will be going to the JUNE RKC as well to get certified, requirement for all trainers working out of Revolution.
He got 40 on his left arm, and 21 on his right. He mistakenly forgot that he could only switch hands once, so I had to stop him after he returned to his left hand. The good news is that he totally could have reached 72 reps (what he needs to snatch in order to pass the test). Next time for sure. Exciting to see him right on target to reach his goal. You'll be hearing alot more about John in the upcoming months.
That's it for now! Blessings!
