    Default Beast Snatch Test

    I thought this was worth sharing here for anyone looking for a new challenge. Of course this is for the advanced trainee.

    It's the beast snatch test. The goal is 100 reps in ten minutes.

    Here's a video of my first attempt at ten minutes.



    After that I also hit 50 reps in five minutes. That was tough.

    You'll notice I do it slightly different than other snatches. I drop the bell to the shoulder before the back swing. This is just a precautionary step as casting down over half my bodyweight for many reps done quickly just sounds like a bad idea to me.

    That is absolutely awesome Logan. Hopefully, you don't have your accomplishments critiqued by a bunch of wannabes who can't do what you can do.

    if I get to snatch the beast just once, I'll be very happy..

    Sadly, there will always be these posers and wannabes who will have something negative to say. That's just the way life is

    Thanks everyone. There was a time when I worked up to snatching the beast for the first time. I still remember that. Just keep moving forward and you'll get there too.
