I Have Failed You All !!!!!

This was our new challenge:

1 Swing
1 Burpee
2 Swings
2 Burpees

Ladder up to 10 Swings,10 burpees in under 5 Minutes.

I didn't make it: 5:41. I will redeem myself !

Some observations:

I never do anything well my first time. I will get 5:00 minutes, hopefully tomorrow.

Swings are easy, should have used the 32kg. Standard for men is 24kg, women is 16kg.

Too much Blue Monster.

JCB - That doesn't look like fun... I'll give it a go though- Dawn you in? Greg?? Pam??? Sammy???? ANyone else?????

RhinoChiroCenter said...

That looks like a nice challenge. I'll give it a go.

Gregory K said...

I did it yesterday after KB class however Pam said it was 10 swings before each round of burpees, so me and Dawn did 100 swings rather than 55. It felt awesome.

JCB, I told that Blue Monster would catch up to you.

Greg is correct. I screwed up, it's:

10 kettlebell swings + 1 Burpee
10 kettlebell swings + 2 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 3 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 4 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 5 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 6 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 7 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 8 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 9 Burpees
10 kettlebell swings + 10 Burpees

But, the burpees have a push-up and jump Greg ! Not that thing you did yesterday.

This will suck even more.

Shouldn't Rich have to aim for three minutes?

When are y'all doing it?

Rich said...

Yeah - 3 minutes! That'll be the time it will take me to barf!

I'll give it a go... Friday work for anybody?

Kettlebell Athletics said...

Which one are you guys trying. My messed up one or the original ?

Rich said...

The original...

Pamela MacElree said...

I can do Friday but not until 7am. Is that too late for the work schedule? Otherwise I'm trying it tomorrow.

Dawn said...

This is the 3rd time I've seen JCB sweat. Good work though.

Hey Rich! I'm not touching that workout again any time soon. Have fun with it.

Good times, Greg! Always a pleasure to almost lose your lunch with a friend.

Gregory K said...

Anytime Dawn, next time I'll make banana pancakes.

What the F is Blue Monster?

Pamela MacElree said...

A secret potion...

24 kb, 10 swings per plus burbee ladder was 6:57. Pam - good op weight loss was about 12 pounds. Bad news...half of it was muscle :).

Will said...

Sounds like somthign for us to do in the next class

Pamela MacElree said...

Good time Mike. Glad to hear your moving around.

Will, I think we could manage that for next week.

Wow, I'm going to have to try this one. The one that JBC F$%& up! Since it's only one swing maybe I should go for the 24k KB?
