In 2 minutes:

15 ‘heavy’ Russian kettlebell swings (A: 70lbs, I*: 53lbs, N: 35lbs)

Then max repetitions of low sled push & high sled push 20 feet (A: +180lbs, I*: +90lbs, N: +0lbs) – Each sled push is 1 rep (out and back = 2 ‘reps’)

Coaching Tips: Trade off with a partner so that you need less sleds set up. Try and get through the kb swings as fast as possible (unbroken, or with a single rest).  Go for broke on the sled pushes due to the 2  min rest!
