After my successful attempts with the 40kg (below), I decided to follow in my wife's footsteps and complete the RKC Snatch test. Now I know watching my snatch is no where near as exciting as watching Yoana snatch 9 months pregnant, but what the heck. At least I will have it on my blog to look back upon to see how my technique has progressed. For my bodyweight of 168, I had to complete 56 total reps with the 24kg KB. No problem as I was able to do 30 and 30 on each side. Rarely do I do high rep snatches but every now and then it's nice to test yourself and see where you are. My 5 + years of using KB's allows me to pass the RKC snatch test without training for it. Most RKC's I know have ZERO problem passing this test at any time they desire. It's challenging , no doubt, but doable!
If you have't seend Yoana passing the RKC snatch test with both the 12kg and 16kg, go to her blog and watch her videos, very impressive!!!
