Here’s my first workout for you of 2018. It’s a test of sorts, where you’re going to max out for 1 minute on 7 basic exercises, and then complete a Snatch endurance test. A test of your kettlebell “prowess”, if you will. (Prowess is an awesome word and it came to me while I was uploading this video, so just go with it.) If all goes well, we’re going to retest this workout at the end of the year so you can see how much you’ve improved!
When you’ve completed the workout, please leave a comment on YouTube with the kettlebell weights you used and your numbers for each test. That way, you can easily find your numbers when we retest at the end of the year.
Swings and push ups are two of my favorite strength training exercises. Swings are an awesome way to target the glutes and hamstrings, while push ups work the shoulders, back, abs, and arms all in one!
In this workout, combine 3 different variations of the swing with 3 different variations of the push up to get a great workout. You’ll start with 5 repetitions of each, then increase by 1 repetition every round until you reach your limit.
Hit reply or comment on the video and let me know what number you got up to! Which exercise was the limiting factor for you?
Weighted lunges and hand release push ups for strength training, followed by short intervals of swings to jack the heart rate up. Subscribe to my newsletter to get weekly workouts sent directly to your inbox!
