No flukes here!

I just wanted to drop by and say that last week’s 24kg kettlebell snatches were not flukes, no siree.  I spent all of our last kettlebell class helping out rather than training, but with one compromise; every time I walked past the 20kg bell I did 1 or 2 snatches either side.  Grease that groove 🙂

They felt good; strong and powerful.  The bell was finding its resting place at the top with no fuss, my arm was locked and back, and my whole core felt engaged and tight.  I totally ♥ that feeling!

And just to put a cherry on top, right at the end I managed one more snatch each side with 24kg.  Once again these were a bit more tentative and took a few moments to lock out at the top, but at no point did I feel like I was going to lose the bell.  Now I just need to work on the 5 & 10 minute snatch tests, with 100 and 200 reps respectively.  It looks like a big mountain from here, but I’m going to enjoy climbing it 🙂
