  1. 4 push ups
  2. 6 kettlebell deadlift high-pulls

  • 4 barbell bent-over rows
  • 5 hang power cleans
  • 6 shoulder to overhead (push press or jerk)
  • For the kettlebell, use a weight you can move quickly and allows you to complete everything unbroken (don’t need to break up the sets of 6 high-pulls and 8 swings). Recommend weight is 16-24 kg, scale that accordingly to your fitness level.
  • For the barbell, choose a weight you can complete each round smoothly and “unbroken”, or without putting the bar down. I used 75 lbs. Recommend weight is 55-95 lbs., scale according to your fitness level.
