    May Challenge:

    The most weight you can snatch in 3 mins

    What to do:

    Grab any weight you want and move the most total poundage you can in 3 mins

    Rules:

    • You have 3 mins, the clock may not stop untill the end
    • Use anything you like KB, DB, BB, neighbourhood children, doesn't matter as long as you know the weight
    • Use 1 handed or 2 handed snatches the choice is up to you (but no switching once you start)
    • The weight must be snatched, no pushouts.
    • Try this challenge as often as you like, try different weights etc.

    Directions for Submission

    Once you're done, calculate the total volume of weigth you have moved using this advanced scientific formula

    Weight x reps = total volume moved

    Ex: 35 x 97 = 3395lbs moved

    The submit your name and score: ex: Standard\3395

    I was considering the open snatch challenge as the title but it may have given the wrong idea...

    where are the conditioning challenges that actually require having beasty I-put-my-lungs-through-hell conditioning, and not weights?

    ;-(

    Foz you can use a pink 2lb DB if you like...

    This should be a good lung burner, with the short time it's going to favour a light to moderate weight to get the highest volume. I don't think busting out near your max with long rest periods is going to work for anyone at all.

    This is a very strategic challenge. I think I can perform this one without killing my lifting. I'm torn as to whether the BB or DB is the way to go. I'd want to say dumbell, now that I think about it more.

    I just picked up a large sweet tea a few times in 3 minutes.

    I'll start us off with about 128oz / krossinc

    Interesting challenge. I'm definitely thinking that I'm using the barbell for this one, at least for the first attempt and I'm going to go for a weight that is about 60% one rep max. I'm not sure though, it's hard to know how heavy to go as it's only 3 minutes.

    I'll post my results in a few days, cheers Standard, like the new AV. lol

    STANDARD - just to clarify one rule about switching.

    Use 1 handed or 2 handed snatches the choice is up to you (but no switching once you start)

    Does this include switching arms when doing one handed dumbbell snatches? (i.e, if my right arm is fucked after two minutes then can I switch to the left arm for the last minute?), or is it just switching from a dumbbell to a barbell that is not allowed?.

    Hope that made sense and sorry if I'm being overly specific, I just want to be sure I follow the rules. Thanks.

    I'll try and explain as best i can


    If you decide to do a traditional 2 handed snatch you can't change over to 1 handed snatches mid set and vise versa.

    Also you can't adjust the weight as you go, pick one weight for that attempt and stick with it. If it was too heavy or not heavy enough try another attempt at the challenge.

    You can switch arms when doing one handed snatches that's fine.



    FlameBoy - check the 100 snatch thread for a demo on a 1 handed snatch, for 2 handed try a search on youtube for snatch, you can do either a full snatch or a power snatch if you like.

    At least it's not a snatch cream pie challenge.

    Thanks Standard, I'm clear over the rules now.
