Take as little rest as possible in each set of movements.
Kettlebell swing reminder: If we lose our strong hinge, back rounds, or legs fail to snap straight in the “drive” portion of the movement, adjust accordingly and continue safely.
Hollow rock: Break into sets that allow for both hard work and high-quality positions (Ex. 20 + 20 + 10, or 7 x 10… ).
