    Post them up guys!

    I'm weak and unfit, did it today in 10:20 with a 16kg kettlebell for the first 2 rounds and a 20kg kettlebell for the last 3 rounds.

    For those that are unaware, this is how it goes...

    5 rounds of:

    5 swings per arm
    5 snatches per arm
    10 burpess

    That's 50 reps in total of each exercise, hence the name.

    My heart was pounding at the end!

    I'm aiming for sub 10 minutes next time as i was mentally weak today and took way more rest than necessary.

    BTW if you're going to do it, make sure the burpess have an all out max jump after each one, none of this 2 inch of the floor business :icon_chee

    Well this will be our own special thread so that we can keep track! I aim to do this at least once per week, hopefully more.

    Nice time and weight. Are you following ross' programme?

    I try to do this at least once a week and have been steadily shaving my time down. I love the magic 50.

    i just tried this for the first time, also first time doing either snatches or swing. It was awesome. Unfortunately i seriously underestimated the weight i could do for the swings.

    27.5 for snatches
    16.5 for swings
    i dont know if you were supposed to do the pushup for the burpee, but i didn't as he mentioned you would move up to harder variations whenever.

    8:50. Easily can shave a lot of time off this. Didn't have my water filled up when i started so between my 3rd adn 4th had to fill it up. First three rounds my spinlock db's weren't tight so i had to keep tightening them.

    Next time definitley upping the weight for the swings.

    I have the crappy old school dumbbells so anything over 25lbs for a snatch gets dangerous.

    I did 25lbs at 185lbs in 8:20. I probably could have shaved about 20 seconds off and gotten to 8:00 so sub 8:00 will be my next goal.

    mannn you gotta do it with the pushup!

    and spirez: i've gone through II's sample program once and now I've been experimenting with new stuff and incorporating ideas from full throttle conditioning.

    we should have this thread for wc101, that workout is beastly

    Fuck I'm outta shape! I'm 165 and use 30lbs. I've never timed it, but I always use the full 1 min rest and I probably take 16-20 minutes.

    Used a 40lbs. thick handle DB for snatches and I used 45lbs. for swings on my adjustable ironmind KB handles. This is my first time using that weight for both exercises, so I finished it in 11:07. It's a good thing my brother was there to time me and to egg me on when I started to slow down. haha.
     
  19. BW = 180

    45 lbs 10m00s

    60 lbs 10m40s (yesterday)


    The trick is to just keep working the entire time. None of the crap like resting between burpees. You get your rest when you get it and 60sec is more than enough.
