Saturday partner WOD

On Saturdays, I coach the 2 classes at my box; one at 9am and then another one at 10am. This was the fun partner WOD for today that they had to do 2 times:

Run 200 meters

50 thrusters 

Run 200 meters

50 weighted sit-ups 

Run 200 meters 

50 ring rows 

Run 200 meters 

50 Kettlebell swings 

I decided to do it myself after the 10am, but I definitely shouldn’t have worn my running sneakers for this! 

Here’s part of the KB swings…

  

It’s still one of those movements that I need to coach my athletes on- they tend to lean forward too much. By having them engage their hips and really squeeze their butts at the top of the movement, they were able to improve the technique.

 

I love KB swings, don’t you? 

Happy weekend!

    1. Hi Emma! You want to think about generating force with your hips and quads, not your upper body. When you bring the kettlebell between your legs, it should only be slightly behind your body; when you lean forward a lot, the kettlebell would be way behind you, so you would want to avoid thatā€¦Thank you for reading!
