Every day I am posting the challenge and adding general training tips and motivational advice. If you're just learning about the challenge, you can go back to Day 1 and feel free to join in any time.

 

Kettlebell Choice: You can either do this challenge as 1-arm kettlebell snatches or swings. It's up to you which you prefer, the snatch is the more challenging exercise. Therefore, choose a weight that feels comfortable for you and remember, at the end of this challenge, you will be hitting a 100 reps.

 

Beginners: Take your time. Set your kettlebell down after each set.

 

Intermediate/Advanced: You can try and complete all reps to get to the total number without setting the bell down following the suggested rep scheme to switch arms.

 

Share Your Experience: I have a Fitness Challenge Group on Facebook, feel free to join, post your progress and share your photos, videos, and experiences with the community. Also, you can use the hashtag #thesnatchchallenge on social media and we'll see you, too. Enjoy the challenge, and have some fun.

I wanted to show you how I handled the Day 4 challenge with a student, Martha. It always helps to have someone going through something like this with you. We're using 35 lbs bells. Martha's technique is really fast reps and she puts it down after 10 reps. I am slower, and steadier, and resting with a hold at the top of the movement, no setting the bell down. It's 5 reps each side, through to 50. Everyone is going to have their own approach but the goal is the same.
