Sucker Punch (Time)

21-18-15-12-9: Kettlebell Swings (50/35) Thrusters (75/55) Rx+ 95/65, 70/50 Stimulus Looking for kettlebell and barbell weights that you could complete 30+ reps unbroken when fresh - or weights that you can complete the bigger sets (21-18-15) with a maximum of 2 quick breaks There are a total of 75 reps on each movement, and 150 total in the workout The kettlebell swings are full swings, finishing with full extension overhead Strategy With a higher number of reps, all finishing overhead, it will be helpful to have a break-up strategy established early As the saying goes, "break because you planned too, not because you have to" There are more reps in the sets of 21 and 18 than there are in the 15-12-9 combined Let's start smart on the 2 big sets and finish strong on the 3 smaller sets Aim for 1-2 quick breaks on the sets of 21 and 18 to preserve yourself for the back half Once you get to the sets of 15-12-9, see if you can complete those with 1 quick break max Below are some possible break-up options:
