AMRAP - Pullups, KB Swings, Pushups

As Many rounds as possible in 20 minutes:

5 C2B Pull-Ups
10 2.0/1.5P Kettlebell Swings
15 Push-Ups

5 rounds + 10 pushups

I subbed kip attempts for pullups and 1P for 1.5 KB swings.

I have to say that this was not a 100% effort - I probably gave this about 85% and got a pretty good workout out of it. Some of my kip attempts got pretty close. The thing I was happiest about with this workout was the KB swings.

Except for the first round and the last round which each had 1 little break when I sort of lost my balance, all the KB were unbroken w/ full ROM - KB all the way overhead. That's certainly new territory for me. The 1P KB has been pretty easy for me for he first 5 swings or so for a while, but they quickly fall apart, and it's unusual for me to get long strings of unbroken reps.

The pushups sucked. I tried to keep myself as tight as possible for them because they really put a lot of strain on the place in my back tat was feeling tweaked. They were definitely the limiting factor in the number of rounds I was able to complete.
