    Default First ROP Test

    Today I did my first test in ROP:

    C&P'd the 24k for 5 reps each arm.

    I'm not quite comfy with the 24 for snatches, so I tested with a 16k and did 210 reps in 10 minutes...and I was smoked!

    I think this might be a mind thing for you--- I can snatch the 24 comfortably, though not for many reps (I only practice the move), but can't press it without a knee dip.

    There is an RKC in every surgeon (like me, as a random example).

    It just may be. I noticed most people are snatching the same weight or more than they press.

    Well, I'll keep working on it. Can't let that thing intimidate me!

    danfaz,
    I might be wrong, but I believe the Press Test is Military Presses, not Clean and Presses. (I do not have my copy of ETK at this time - on loan to a friend)...With M/Ps you have to maintain high tension throughout the set. If I am incorrect about please tell me ..I could be doing it wrong!)...Dennis

    Thumbs up

    ad5ly, I just re-read pages 145-146 to make sure myself. The "Kettlebell Clean & Press Rules" read:

    *Clean the kettlebell with one hand & pause motionless...
    *Press with your knees locked...
    *Your nonwoking hand must be away from body...
    *Lock out your elbow completely...
    *Lower kettlebell to chest & then between legs...
    *Without taking extra swings & without letting kettlebell touch the ground, reclean & continue... [This part to me means you clean before each rep]
    *When you have done all reps with one arm, switch arms...

    Do others read it this way?

    I don't know if this applies to the test, but I think I remember reading that he said it was okay to start switching to straight up MP's once you get a base with the clean and press and can handle the extra stress.

    EDIT: I looked it up and it said in ETK that the C&P can be replaced with MP's only on your light day. So this leads me to believe that the test is for sure done with a clean each time.
