When I'm practiced, doing continuous light kettlebell snatches at a slower pace can be sustained at lower %s.
You'll get arguments from a lot of cardio experts that it's not as good as traditional cardio modes (jogging, rowing, etc), but I'm not convinced that it really matters. If I do an hour of continuous kettlebell snatches, you're absolutely working the heart and lungs and I don't give a crap of concern about wattage.
I have seen you mention this, and one day I will try it, but my concern (which may be unfounded) is that adding something like kettlebell snatches to my other lifting may be too much work for my upper body and shoulders. I'm already doing 2-3 series of Q&D 3 days a week, PLUS barbell lifts in 5/3/1 format, so I am really looking for just a simple way to keep my heart rate in the aerobic range a couple sessions a week. Do you think adding more kettlebells would be advisable? I guess if it's light enough to sustain for an hour it may not be something that I get overworked by, it just worries me that I'm doing too much.
