7 Minute KB Swing + Push Up Ladder Challenge

by admin on January 25, 2016

I did a great kettlebell and bodyweight workout this morning in my garage, and finished with a killer 7 minute KB swing / push up challenge that I wanted to share with you.

This is great to do at the end of your existing workout to finish off strong.

You could even do at as a stand – alone training session in a pinch.

Here’s how it goes:

7 Minute KB Swing + Push Up Ladder Challenge

– Set your timer for 7 minutes
– Start with 4 KB swings (recommended weight = 32k for men, 20k for women – but use whatever weight is do-able for YOU with perfect form)
– Follow your swings immediately with 4 perfect push ups
– Go right into 6 swings
– Follow those with 6 push ups
– “Climb the Ladder”, increasing each exercise by two reps each set, and get as high as you can in 7 minutes.

Here’s a video with some tips to help you improve your KB swing technique:

I made it to *just* short of 18 reps of each in 7 minutes with a 32k ‘bell.

Can you beat my score?
