As you might know I love a good challenge. I’m not overly competitive playing sports – but I am pretty competitive with myself and pushing my limits in order to continuously challenge myself. When my friend Jason told me about the kettlebell meltdown 300 workout and that he did, and bet that I could make good time – I accepted the challenge!
I convinced Darren (Vancouver Kettlebell) to take the challenge with me and it kicked our butts – but was a killer workout!
Here’s what the workout consists of… but just to push it we started with a 1 mile run and then completed the Kettlebell Meltdown 300 workout:
Run 1 Mile
50 Snatches (25 Left 25 Right)
50 Clean & Press (25 Left 25 Right)
50 Mountain Climbers
The key is to do it as fast as you possibly can (with correct form) and try for your best time. The only modifications I did this time (it was my first time around!) I went to knees on my push ups at about 15 – but didn’t rest – and I only tuck jumped for half of the burpees. Other than that I used a 20lb kettle bell for the snatches and a 30lb for the swings and clean and presses.
Time = 23 minutes!
It was a great workout and I’m so pumped to try it again to see if I can beat my time. If you want to see what it looks like take a look at the Kettlebell Meltdown 300 workout:
