I’m hoping we are now a) familiar with the Kettlebell Swing and b) madly in love with and appreciative of the Burpee! …yah?! Shall I continue?!
Do check out my posts on how to execute these two exercises –
What better way to check the above than to put the two together in the form of a challenge workout?! …here it is!
Here are a few tips and considerations:
# time how long it takes you to complete the challenge. Record the time and then repeat the challenge every two weeks to see if you can improve your time!
# do not forget your form and technique! It is very important to reduce the risk of injury. It is especially important when you start to tire and are highly likely to lose form.
# if full burpees are too much for you right now, you can step them rather than squat thrust at the bottom. As you improve, maybe squat thrust out to plank and then step in, progressing to the full burpee.
# if you need to increase the challenge, when you get to the end, take one minute recovery and complete the challenge in reverse!
# keep a note of the time it takes you to complete the challenge so you can test yourself again each month and see if you’ve made any improvements 😉
Go on…give it a go this weekend! Let me know how you get on!

P.S Safety always comes first. If you are new to exercise ensure you seek advice from your GP. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, wear appropriate clothing and carry out drills in a suitable space. Technique is paramount, and nothing should hurt. Should you experience pain, discomfort, nausea, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath etc, STOP and consult your GP.
