Once again for this one you will have a few options for the first movement. Today you will choose between single under jump rope reps, taps (one toe taps kb or db, then other in almost a running fashion), or low step ups (think 8-12").
Make sure you pick what works best for you and move the entire 30 seconds each time.
For the mountain climbers you will start out in a top of push up position - plank. You will make sure that you aren't sagging your hips and that your butt isn't too high in the air either. Bring one knee up to the chest/armpit - and back -then the other. Keep that belly tight and butt down. Each time a knee comes up = 1 rep. So for each setoff 16 each knee will come up 8 times.
You may also do these elevated if necessary!
For the deadlifts you will either have a dumbbell or kb between the feet - OR - you may have 2 lighter dumbbells outside of the feet.
Heels are down. Hips and knees are bent. Arms are straight. Chest is up. Belly tight. Back flat! To lift the kettlebell drive the heels into the ground and lift the chest. Keep the arms straight as you stand. Keep the arms long and straight. Keep the chest up and belly tight. Stand all of the way up at the top.
To lower - reach the butt back. Keep the chest lifted and belly tight. Keep those heels down. Once past the knees you will re-bend the knees and bring the kettlebell back to the starting position under control.
