Weekend Kettlebell Workout

Here’s a workout I did this weekend that was quick, to the point, and super productive.
The entire workout took less than 40 minutes to complete. We could have (and should have) finished a lot sooner, but this was done with a friend who I have not seen in a while and we ended up doing some chatting in between.
Even with that, it was a perfect challenge for a quick weekend workout.
Here’s what it looked like (after a short warm up)
We started with two round of heavy barbell cleans. Now, I don’t mean 1RM heavy… instead, we used a weight that we could perform about 5 controlled reps.
After the two round of barbell cleans, we went into a kettlebell circuit that looked like this:

  • 10 “figure 8’s”
  • 3 single are kettlebell snatches (each arm)
  • 2 heavy kettlebell clean and jerks (each arm)
  • 10 “figure 8’s”
  • 3 single are kettlebell snatches (each arm)
  • 2 heavy kettlebell clean and jerks (each arm)

After that kettlebell sequence, we went into a 500 meter row – keeping it under a two minute pace.
From there, we went back to the barbell for cleanse and repeated that entire sequence a second round.
Give this a try and let me know what you think…
