Both myself and Anna completed this crazy workout which ends up being 500 double arm kettlebell swings, 500 snatches and 500 double unders. We did this workout quite a while ago, looking back on this now, our time was pretty sad and we have improved so much, the reason for our improvement is the #28daykettlebellswingchallenge.
- 100 double arm conventional swings heavy weight
- 100 full snatches medium weight
- 100 double-unders
- REPEAT 5 times
It took me 2 hours 28 minutes and 48 seconds to complete this workout, granted I suck at double-unders, but my time for the swings and snatches was also pretty bad. I should had been able to pump out way more than 30 or 40 per set.
In the workout I swung a 24kg kettlebell and snatched 16kg, watch my video below where I can now perform 200 unbroken swings with a 28 in just over 5 minutes, all due to participation in the #28daykettlebellswingchallenge
Taken the above into consideration, I should be able to do all 100 swings unbroken, all five sets just over 3 minutes per set, so that would account for 15 to 20 minutes for the swings, the snatches should be anywhere between 4 and 5 minutes for 100, so that would make 25 minutes. The hardest part is the double-unders, I still suck at them, so my estimate when doing this again will be just under 2 hours. Join our kettlebell swing group to stay up to date.
Anna finished the workout in 3 hours 10 minutes and 4 seconds, she even had a bit of a throw-up session afterwards. So yeah, no doubt this workout is hard, but I intend to show how the high volume challenge with a heavy weight has improved my swings and snatches, by doing this workout again very soon.
