01 Apr How To Smash The Kettlebell Snatch Test (And Keep Calm And Cool Under Pressure)

I vividly remember my first "official" kettlebell snatch test with Pavel (and the previous RKC) back in 2010. Many times before I had performed a snatch test, but not when it counted - as it did at the certification. I'll be honest, I had some jitters before stepping up to snatch that bell. No doubt, there's pressure when you're being timed (and judged) to snatch 100 reps with a 24 kilo kettlebell in 5 minutes. The backstory was that I had been well prepared and had nailed the snatch test countless times prior to doing it at the RKC. No doubt, I was ready to go. Yet, why was I anxious about it? Why do so many others seem to get "freaked out” when it comes time for the vaunted snatch test? Well, there’s a stigma to it - even though it’s only a very small part of the kettlebell certification experience.
