Secret Service Snatch Test

This is max kettlebell snatches in 10 minutes, correct? What is a decent score for a 1 pood kettlebell? I got 151 the other day, and I have no idea how to compare myself to others...is there some standard I should be shooting for?

I'm 37 yo next Saturday, 225 lbs, male.

hi tim--

the test is done with a 1.5 pood (24kg) kettlebell.

here's an article about it from dragondoor (appears w/f safe):

Tim -

Nice work! You're well on the way! I've worked with members of the SS CAT team to get their numbers up... and they are looking for at least 200 in 10 minutes - a snatch every 3 seconds. There have been some "monsters" who have gotten well above that...

BTW - If you've already gotten 150 then 200 isn't that far away. Learning how to maximize your hip thrust and minimize the swing on the KB will help you add numbers fast.

Best of lcuk to you!
