San Jose RKC Day One; The dreaded Snatch test
Day one of the first RKC Cert in California is over and what a day! the facilities at San Jose State University are incredible and Team Leader Chris Holder did us proud arranging things for us to have everything we need for a great teaching environment.
Here are some photos Tracy took as Team Rif went through their snatch test paces.Everyone is always so nervous til they get this out of the way, not realizing that this is just the very begining of the "fun".
It was perfect weather, warm clear and sunny,a great example of California winter.
On a sad note, Joe Sarti missed Taming the Beast by one inch again in the pullup. He crushed the pistol and the press but just couldnt manage the last part of the pull. The added mass he has put on with his squat program might have made things a bit harder.But he was gamer and put on a good show.We had numerous Beast Tamers this year including one guy who looked like he could do five reps on each event no problem He is one of Chris Holders coaches and this guy is a MONSTER! More on him later, gotta go teach the clean!
