In 2 minutes:

15 ‘heavy’ Russian kettlebell swings (Performance: 70lbs, Athletic*: 53lbs, Health: 35lbs)

Then max repetitions of low sled push & high sled push 20 feet (Performance: +180lbs, Athletic*: +90lbs, Health: +0lbs) – Each sled push is 1 rep (out and back = 2 ‘reps’)

Rest 2 minutes

Repeat 15 kb swings and then max sled pushes in 2 min again.

Record total sled push reps.

*Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)

Scaling Guide:  15 – 30 reps (remember that out and back = 2 ‘reps’)

Coaching Tips: Trade off with a partner so that you need less sleds set up. Try and get through the kb swings as fast as possible (unbroken, or with a single rest).  Go for broke on the sled pushes due to the 2  min rest!
