Post KB Push Press Loads and Workout Time and Number of KB Swing Sets to Comments
For the strength segment, perform sets of 3 reps per arm with a KB…one arm at a time.  You can use a different load for each arm.  Do not hold a KB in the non-working hand…this will make you really have to tighten your core as you perform your reps.  Sets 4 through 6 are for max reps on each arm.  Just don’t get sloppy.

For the conditioning workout, RXd is with Russian Swings.  If you cannot complete RXd, use the heaviest KB you can handle.  Generally, you should be doing somewhere between 3 and 5 sets of swings.  If you can’t do that, you’re load is too heavy.
