10 Kettlebell Workouts to Build Incredible Mental Toughness for CrossFit Athletes

2. COLOSSUS KB WOD

I designed this kettlebell complex so that the movements build upon each other, from dead to lift, to hang clean, cleaning with a swing, swinging, snatching, and pressing. The whole movement pattern feels very natural and really creates a real buzz. The only thing missing from the pattern is a row which is why I programmed those as sets in between the AMRAPs. The UKC is explained extremely detailed in our book Kettlebell Complexes Made Simple.

6 minutes of UKC AMRAP
4 minutes of 50 bent-over rows
6 minutes of UKC AMRAP
4 minutes of 40 bent-over rows
6 minutes of UKC AMRAP
Finish with 30 bent-over rows

If you finish your bent-over rows before the end of 4 minutes, use the remainder for rest!
Performed with double kettlebells. Rx 16kg for males and 12kg for females. The UKC is the Ultimate Kettlebell Combo by Cavemantraining, which consists of:
