Russian KB Swings (70/53)

KB Facing Burpees


Videos courtesy of Hurricane CrossFit and ShapeFit, respectively.  Demos for the KB Facing Burpee and Knee2Elbow. Looking to get some good hip extension in the KB swing and KB facing burpees, and then good hip flexion in the Knee2Elbows.  Don’t sleep on those K2Es!  Some folks actually find these harder than Toe2Bars. Make sure the knees make contact with the elbows for the rep to count.

Scaling Options:

KB weight -> 53/35 -> as needed

Knee2Elbow -> Kipping Knee Raise -> V-Ups

Cool Down:

Iron cross hold – 1 min per side


Roll out t-spine – 2 Min
