A. Deadlifts
135-160-190-200-225-240#

B. I was very scared about doing this… I get very tired during double unders and after 20, I’m done. And the KBs at 53#, American style, requires me to winding up a couple half swings to get up there. So this is what I did –

3 rounds for time;
80 DUs
40 KBS 53#
20 reverse lunges with 55# barbell on my back

23:57

That was very scary for me, but I still went for it.

Invictus does recommend using the hybrid swing which is to eye level and not going all the way up. If you do a search for kettlebell swings on this site, an article should pop up explaining why. Good job getting through a TOUGH workout!

Thank you for letting me know Janelle. I wasn’t sure, because I didn’t research and in the past I have seen where it is specified that it is a Russian swing vs all the way up. That makes a lot of sense, and now I know for next time. That would have saved me a lot of time. 😬
