Candidates must wear clothing which would allow the testing instructor to see whether the elbows and the knees have locked out, e.g. a T-shirt and gym shorts. Upon the testing instructor’s command the clock starts and the candidate swings the kettle bell back between the legs and snatches it overhead in one uninterrupted movement to a straight-arm lockout.
The candidate is allowed to place the free hand on the hip or waist (but not on the thigh) and move the feet. However, the student must stop all movement when fixing the weight in the top position.
If you have a medical condition that prevents you from fully locking out your elbow you must notify your Team Leader before the snatch test is administered. The biomechanical breathing match is encouraged, but not a standard for the snatch test.
An unlimited number of hand switches and back swings is allowed. Failed to stop all movement (the kettle bell, the body, and the feet) at the lockout.
Touched the chest or the shoulder with the working arm and/or the kettle bell on descent. Chalk is allowed: belts, gloves, wrist wraps, and other supportive equipment are not.
