Double KB Russian Swings (53/35)

Double KB Thrusters (53/35)

*100′ KB Farmers walk after every set of KB Thrusters


Time Cap: 12 Min

Video courtesy of ShapeFit.  With the Double KB Thrusters, have the KB sit right between the bicep and elbow area on each side.  Just like with barbell thrusters, the more you use your leg power coming out of the squat to move the weight upwards the easier it will be on the arms and shoulders.
