10 Kettlebell Workouts to Build Incredible Mental Toughness for CrossFit Athletes

Kettlebell Clean-and-Jerk
Kettlebell Half Snatch
You are allowed one attempt at max reps of the exercises with only one switch for each exercise before moving on to the next exercise. No more than one second before moving the weight, in other words, resting longer than one second is now allowed. Putting the weight down is not allowed.

For the strict press, you only need to press up and you can drop the weight back into a racking position. For the snatch, you can squat under.

There are no scaling options for this challenge.

Score is the total number of reps times the weight used. For example, if you used a 16 kg and did a total of 200 reps then your score is 3,200 kg. If you used pounds, then just multiply by pounds and use lbs at the end of the score. Add an M for male or F for female, i.e. 3200KGM.
