    Thanks,I might try that scheme out. I'm not going for the RKC. Just a higher level of conditioning.

    As I said above to sunstreaker, I'm just training for fitness. But having said that I do want to get better at snatching, (among other things), and improve my level of conditioning. My long term goal is to be able to "complete this test with a comfortable effort in the minimum time necessary, without rushing." But I'm not there yet conditioning and/or strength wise and I'm looking for any advantage I can get while still maintaining good form.

    At the end of the test I was pretty winded. Right now it's a taxing thing for me. I recovered quickly because my overall level of conditioning is good. If I keep working at things like this it will get better.

    I had been doing some of this type of training in the past but because of the program I'm on right now I've cut back. I'm working on pullups doing static hangs, (for one thing), and that's a good adjunct to my grip training.

If you NEED it to finish within 5 minutes, you are switching hands too often, putting the bell down too much, and/or taking too long between reps (slow cadence). It may have its place if you are chasing absolute speed, but it is difficult to execute smoothly. Most guys I've seen try it tend to get pulled forward and have all kinds of other slop. The guys who do it well definitely don't NEED it to complete the test on time.
    I seem to do well enough on the speed switch most of the time but a few times I do get pullled forward which is why I do like Dave said in the video. I do it outside because, "you WILL drop it."

    Thanks for taking the time to answer Steve and for all your good tips!

    Just a friendly reminder people, one RKC principle is "strength before conditioning"

    so in order to get your snatch numbers up or shave time off your snatch test, practice heavier swings and snatches instead trying to always add more reps with your current snatch size bell.
