Rockin' the 10 minutes Snatch Test

Yesterday I shared the love of testing..... Before I post my own training I wanted to give a "shout out" to my 9:00am Intermediate group class that is on the verge of turning into an Advanced skill level class.

I knew it was time to put them through the fun of a real challenge. Although I initially thought to test them for 5 minutes, I reconsidered and knew nothing short of 10 minutes was going to give them a real sense of accomplishment for all of the hard work and commitment to training they have all showed for these past months.

They all rocked it, and I feel like a proud Mommy! I know how much work we get done in a 45 minute class. Literally hundreds of swings and snatches regularly. Easily 3, 4, 5 times work to rest ratios.....and more!

I taught all but one their very first swing and I remember how 10 swing reps was a challenge, as it it for everyone first learning. Now on to even more bigger and better workouts! The summer is going to be a blast!

Congratulations to time I won't forget to take a picture!
