15-Rep Burnout with Kim Fox

Today my good friend and Absolute World Record Holder in 2x24kg Long Cycle, Kim Fox, is leading the workout of the week!

The assignment is to complete 8 sets of 15 repetitions. Start at your competition weight and decrease weight by 1-2kg each set. Your goal is to complete this workout as quickly as possible. As always, safety is my priority, so please be sure that you are maintaining your form and using kettlebell weights appropriate to your level of experience.

An alternate workout that Kim mentions in the video is for those who don’t have enough kettlebells (consider purchasing True Grit kettleweights or PlateMate weights). Instead of decreasing in weight, you will decrease in repetitions each round with 20 seconds of rest in between (i.e. 15 reps, 14 reps, 13 reps… down to 1).


For those of you who don’t know who Kim is, she is a pioneer in the world of women’s double kettlebell lifts, and the first woman to ever officially compete in 2x24kg Long Cycle (and smash most of the men’s numbers too!). She is the owner of Fox Fitness in Wichita, Kansas, and coaches her own Kettlebell Sport team. You can check out more videos from Kim on her YouTube channel

World Record Holder Kim Fox talks strength, mindset, and making history

If you are a female Kettlebell Sport lifter, you should know the name Kim Fox.

Kim is blasting through the “glass ceiling” in Kettlebell Sport, so to speak. Historically, women have only been allowed to compete in Snatch. Kim and Chelsey Marr took a big step for female athletes a few short weeks ago by showing the world there is no reason  women should not compete with two kettlebells – and heavy ones, at that.

Doesn’t everyone lift kettlebells during a tornado?

Beautiful Austin sunset.

Over Memorial Day weekend 2015, I traveled to Austin, Texas to compete in the Texas Open Kettlebell Sport Championships. I left with a couple of bags and my lifting shoes, and came home with an Absolute Champion trophy, a new PR, a weightlifting belt, tons of new kettle-friends, more kettlebell knowledge, great memories, and the desire to go back and visit again soon!

First things first: Results!  Continue reading
