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 2 of 21

You're still challening yourself and not competing with anyone or anything. Go at your own pace. Here's how I did on my Day 1 of the challenge.



1-Arm Kettlebell Snatch or Swing:
Total = 40


Tip of the Day - Go to bed early

If you're not sleeping enough, you're not letting your body heal fully. New moms and dads know this only too well. The best thing to do when you're not sleeping is to do low stress training which means breaking up the sets, and getting rest in-between if you have to. You don't have to add to your stress with this challenge. Work around it, grab extra zzzz's when you can. It's not being lazy, it's doing what's called, self care!
