Andrea Du Cane's awesome Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD (run time: 2 hours, 25 minutes)
Ladders, ascending, descending make for great workout structures. I like to use a descending ladder when going a little on the heavy side, so that each rep is super high quality every round. The following ladder workout is a little different since each round is has some unchanging "bookends". Each round begins with 20 Kirsty Grosart!)swings, and each round ends with one handstand practice attempt and hold (thanks again for those awesome handstand blocks,
The fun thing about this full body combo is how much it can be altered - I chose a "medium heavy"for the 20 swings (a 26kg I happened to have indoors already) and a medium weight for the presses and thrusters (a ). Decided to use the 26kg for the squats though - and that was fun. I could go heavier on both , but allow for more rest between rounds, OR I could go lighter on both and challenge myself to complete the ladder with the best possible form--but in the least amount of time! Let me know if you decide to try it, and if you make a cool modification of your own!
I warmed up with some floor mobility exercises - ankle circles, shinbox, bretzel, plow, lightarmbar, and a few halos from half kneeling. For fun I did a couple of getups with the then... the ladder fun began.
Must confess... when I make this ahead, I make a little extra as a snack! It's good hot, it's good cold, it's good today, it's good tommorrow or the next day! It's good marinated for a couple hours or just thrown in the pan! I love it! :)

I'd gotten it into my head that for a few workouts I wanted to do at least 100 swings with the. For my size that sounds like a lot, but it's actually not too bad--after training with for many years and having solid form with swings (which I am still improving...)
Andrea's Blog Post is So Awesome I had to Blog about it and Record a Podcast Too... Kettlebell "Origin Story" and MORE!
Master RKC Andrea Du Cane shared an incredible blog post this past week... its one of those that if I had a time machine, I'd send it right back to 2009! It's a complete plan for prep and it's not just focused on the dreaded Test!
