Burpee Form
*Remember in the burpee, the chest hits the deck and the clap is overhead behind the ears!
W.O.D. 4.30.09
Burpees & Kettlebell swings.
This workout runs every minute on the minute for 30 minutes. Start with one rep of each movement on the first minute, then add one rep every minute thereafter.
Minute One: 1 Burpee, 1 KBS
Minute Two: 2 Burpees, 2 KBS
Minute Three: 3 Burpees, 3 KBS
Minute Four: 4 Burpees, 4 KBS etc ...
Continue as long as you can adding one rep to each movement until you "miss" - until you can no longer complete all the reps within one minute. At that point you re-start on the next minute, beginning at one rep and adding up again. Your total number of reps is your final score for this WOD.
