W.O.D. 10.29.14

Burpees and 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. 

Example: 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 of each exercise and adding up again. Your total number of reps (for all 30 minutes) is your final score for this WOD.
