Today's kettlebell conditioning fun

The idea here is to work continuously for 4 minutes, then rest 1 min before moving on to the next work interval.

Conditioning triplets:

Triplet 1: KB 1-arm C&P, R :20/ KB 1-arm C&P, L :20/KB hand-to-hand drops :20

Repeat 4x, rest 1 min. move on

Triplet 2: KB 1-arm swings, R :20/ KB 1-arm swings, L :20/ burpees :20

Repeat 4x, rest 1 min, move on

Triplet 3: 1-arm KB snatch, R :20/1 arm KB snatch, L :20/KB hand to hand swings :20

Repeat 4x, rest 1 min

Lather, rinse, repeat.

If you're as obsessed with the OctoMom as most of the supermarket tabloids seem to be, you could also do an Octuplet version of this workout. Do 30 seconds of each exercise in the order written, omitting the burpees or the hand to hand swings (your choice, but I personally think the drill would flow better if you omitted the burpees), then rest 1 min and repeat 6x.
