Every day for the next 21 days, I will be posting the challenge and adding general training tips and motivational advice. This challenge is a great way for you to supplement an existing training program, re-charge your kettlebell practice or, just help you focus on goal setting and achievement.


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.


Day 1 of 21

This is your first day, take it easy. You are challening yourself and not competing with anyone or anything.




1-Arm Kettlebell Snatch or Swing:
Total = 30


Tip of the Day - Create small, simple goals that are just too easy not to do

Whether you are an advanced trainee or just starting out, creating achievable goals is a great way to reach climb higher in your practice. If you hit the challenge goal here today, you should definitely count yourself as successful. In my experience, even the few minutes of the day that these challenges take up can lead to bigger things. Every day, every success, adds up. You will begin to feel stronger, more confident and surprisingly more motivated to begin to add other things voluntarily. Confidence sets in and the winner mentality takes over quickly.
