Burn of the Day {BOD} 7/5/13

Warm-up:

3-3-3-3-3
45# barbell Overhead Squats

MetCon:

Every Minute on the Minute {I love using this YouTube video timer for EMOTM workouts. It beeps every minute for 30 minutes} http://youtu.be/Y-AYC3_DbpY
5 push-ups
15 American or Russian Kettlebell Swings {35#}

Add 1 push-up each successive minute until failure


Here's a hint on kettlebell swings...your quads should not be burning. This is not a squat! Yes, you are bending your knees, but just enough to "catch" the kettlebell on the downswing. It's more of a hip thrust action to get that sucker up to overhead {American} or to shoulder or eye-level {Russian}.
