Coaching Tips: Pace the first run (go much slower than you think you should); it will save you for the rest of the workout. Also, breakup the kettlebell swings up before failure, as you should save some of your strength for the pull-ups. Push the pace as you are finishing up the pull-ups, because you will have long rest (on the run) from pulling motions. Focus on using your hips to get kettlebell up, any excess pulling with the arms will slow you down on pull-ups.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: 16 db overhead reverse lunge steps, 20 wall ball, 5 min, OR 3 sets of 15 banded tricep press downs in a super set
