Secret Service Snatch Test

Today was my first PPP-workout with a little something ekstra at the end. PPP stands for press, pistol and pullup and is a strength triathlon including these three lifts. I did weight ladders covering 28 – 36kg in all three lifts and stuck to singles during the workout. Pistols and pullups are coming along nicely considering the their long absence from my training.

 To round up I did the equally dreaded and legendary Secret Service Snatch Test with a personal best of 222 reps in ten minutes. The SSST is a kettlebell strength endurance test with a 24kg kettlebell.

 With today’s test I’m going to back of from the personal bests for a while, and try to get more volume and work capacity into my training, with a combined CNS, high volume training and high intensity aerob training. It’s going to be interesting to see the results in a few months.

 That’s it for now!
