NEW VIDEO: Double Clean & Burpee Finisher

 I’m just about to wrap things up for the day here at Headquarters – which could be any number of indie espresso shops here in the Greater Toronto Area.

Before I take off and digitally disconnect for the weekend, I wanted to make sure that I posted this video for you.  As requested (from various Facebook friends and Twitterers – is that what you call them?), it’s another "finisher" using double-KB cleans and full body explosive bodyweight exercise – the burpee.

I’ve organized it in a ladder format with very little rest (actually none).  So you’ll do 5 cleans and then 5 burpees (you don’t have to start at "5", pick a number conducive to your level) and then work your way down the ladder by doing 1 rep less than the previous set.  when you hit "1" of each, climb right back up the ladder to your original number.

This is also a great quick workout if you only have less than 10 minutes to train.

Give it a shot and let me know what you think….



Have an awesome weekend!

    Nice one Chris:

    This sort of stuff is so much better than the facade you see going on at commercial gyms these days. i.e. the Bicep curls, tricep kick-back, protein shake, “fat burning zone” (doh!) nonsense (whilst texting to their mates). Anybody doing bicep curls in front of a mirror should be laughed at.

    Well done Chris and keep up the great work (it does get read and the workouts do get done!)

    Hi Chris,
    Can you tell me exactly what does the kettle bell swing actually do for your body?

    Would love to try this but I only have a 16 and 20 kg..Can I still do it? Or maybe just single cleans switch sides then burpees?
