Swing Thruster Burpee Workout

Now that you have the video instruction on how to do a Kettlebell Swing, Thruster, and Burpee, I’ll hit you with a killer workout.  This one will surely leave you out of breath and will build that anaerobic endurance that we strive for on steep, pumpy routes.  When your body can reduce a pump faster, you are better off.  This workout and this style of working out, in general, will help that.  I have personally noticed an increase in my endurance when climbing from doing these full body workouts.

5 Rounds (as fast as possible with good form) of:

20 Kettlebell Swings

15 Thrusters (use Kettlebell, dumbbells, or barbell)

10 Burpees

Bonus exercise:  5 Pull ups

Double Bonus:  500 M Row or 300 M Run

The main workout contains the swings, thrusters, and burpees.  If you are feeling frisky, do the pull ups and/or the running or rowing.  Obviously, the rowing requires a Concept 2 indoor rowing machine.  I think rowing is great and is another awesome, full body workout.  Give it a try if you have access to a rower!  You can do this workout outside and for the running portion, run up and down your driveway a few times.  Ideally, the rowing or running will take 1-2 minutes for each round.

I hope you all enjoy!  Let me know if you give it a shot.
