    (Photo: Friend or foe; It’s all just a matter of perspective… )

    Pendlay row:

    5 x 7 @ (up to) 75% of 2RM

    Rest as needed between sets. If sets require interruption, make as minor an adjustment as needed and complete the next uninterrupted. When scheme is listed as “5 x 7″, it always refers to “Sets” x “Reps”. Reminder: Position and execution always govern weight.

    Then, 5 rounds of:

    5 Kettlebell row (Left)
    1 Kettlebell clean (Left)
    5 Kettlebell front squat (Left)
    5 Kettlebell row (Right)
    1 kettlebell clean (Right)
    5 Kettlebell front squat (Right)
    1 minute rest

    Weakest lift in the sequence governs weight; Each round is to be completed with the same kettlebell. Adjust by round as needed. If one of the lifts “feels light”, make it feel heavy with bracing, tension, and violence of action.

    And then, 3 aggressive minutes of:

    5L, 5R 1-arm kettlebell swing @ recommended 1/4 BW

    2 x :10 sec. rest may be taken if needed. Mechanics govern weight; There is no value to soft, slow kettlebell swings.

    Immediately into:

    30 Medicine ball shuttle run (20 yd. ea. @ 15lb. W, 20lb. M)

    Medicine ball remains in-hand but touches the ground at the end of each sprint.

    And finally, “Time under tension”:

    25 calorie Airdyne @ cool-down pace
