This week’s workout of the week is a GRIND! We’ve got two light weightlifting movements that bode well for cycling big sets, but… the large, increasing rep scheme turns this one into quite the workout!
Kettlebell Swings (53/35)
The big challenge today is in this rep scheme. The first two and even three rounds go by very quickly. You bounce back and forth between these two movements and things feel pretty good! Right around the end of the third round (the round of 30), things start getting tough and you realize.. you’re not even halfway through the total reps of the workout! The key is to keep our cool and take big chunks out of these movements in the back half of this workout.
For both the wallballs and the kettlebell swings, we want to lean into their cyclical nature and hold on to big sets. Choose a weight for both movements that you can do 20 reps comfortably unbroken. This way we can maintain at least double digit sets as we chip away at the big rounds of 40 and 50!
Our goal is to get this done under 20 minutes. Can you push it to 15 minutes or less??
