Week 3

Day 1: Every Minute On the Minute (EMOM)

Set a clock for 10 minutes. The exercises in each round below should be completed once each minute for 10 minutes. Whatever time is left after you have completed the reps is yours to rest until the next minute starts. So each set should be completed 10 times within that 10 minute round.

**This workout is designed for heavier bells, so if you have light bells, increase the reps a bit. You should finish each set with between 20-30 seconds of rest time.

Round 1:  Upright Row 4  /  Front Squat 4  /  Pushup 4

Round 2:  Goodmorning 4  /  Single KB Thruster 4 /  Burpee 4

Round 3:  1 KB Rack Front Lunge 2 ea  /  1 KB Pullover  4  /  Bicycle Kick 4 ea

Day 2: Kettlebell Cycle

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds on the right side and then immediately repeat on the left side. Rest for about a minute and then repeat the same round again for 3 total sets before moving on to the next round.

* *A few exercises do not really have a right and left side (Ex. Figure 8) You will just perform these exercises twice within each set
