We only had 30 minutes and we started out with my usual swing/snatch combinations with our normal training weight. 10-12 snatches with a "normal" training weight is not a big deal, in fact dare I say it's easy. Any sets longer that 45 sec., 1 min, 1.5 min, etc and things start to get interesting. Add in pace and it starts to get fun!
I knew I wanted to snatch at a 12 reps per 30 sec pace, 24 reps per min)., because "24" was the theme of the morning. I had never (ever) snatched the 16kg 24 reps in a row without a hand switch. In fact the most reps I've probably ever done continuously with the 16kg, if I had to guess, would probably be 15, but that's just a guess. 12 for sure.
So, armed with the comp bell (smaller handle and different weight distribution) I knew what my goal for the morning would be. 1st set 24/24 in 2 minutes. No faster, no slower.
I'm not going to say it was easy, but it was. My left arm did feel the fatigue in the last couple of reps. We took a 1 minute break, during which I decided that I could probably do it again! No time like the present! So, 1 min rest period later, we did another 2 minute set, 24/24.
Fine! It was a total PR for me and I wasn't going to push it anymore. We took all 1 minute rest periods and finished off the workout with 5 more sets of 24 reps per set. Personally I did them 6/6/6/6. Brenda finished her last two sets with the 16kg and Maribel, for only the second time, finished her last set with the 16kg.
two 2 min sets/1 min rest (24/24)
five 1 min sets/1 min rest (6 R/ 6 L/ 6 R/ 6 L)
16 minutes, 216 snatch reps (9 minutes of snatching, 7 minutes rest)
So basically the first 5 minutes was almost the equivalent of the snatch test only 4 reps short (96), but with a full minute rest in between 2-3 minutes.
