Coaching Tips: Kettlebell swings are Russian height, and one arm. Make sure to keep your body square at the top of the swing, you can use your non-working arm to ‘tap’ the kettlebell on the top of the swing to ensure you are staying square. If chest to bar pull-ups are something you struggle with think about doing singles on these from the start. This will help you not ‘burn out’ on the pull-ups, and save your lungs a bit for the rest of the workout. If you do singles, really minimize the rest between trip ups.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 400m run with medball
