Week 10

Day 1: Ladder with Superset

Each set starts with a kettlebell exercise that will ladder from 2-10, followed by a secondary kettlebell exercise that will always be 10 reps and a bodyweight movement that will also be 10 reps. The ladder exercise will follow a 2-4-6-8-10 format. So the first set you will perform 2 reps, followed by the secondary and body weight exercises. Then you will perform 4 reps, again followed by secondary and bodyweight. This continues until you complete a final set of 10. There are 3 full rounds that follow this format.
