The Monster

(Renu performing the sumo deadlift high pull)

(Matt performing the pushup part of the Monster)

This morning in the 5:30am Tu/Th Deep Eddy class everyone performed a new kettlebell exercise. We named it the Monster. I learned the entire combination yesterday with Coach Ben Flores and decided to implement the exercise into a Relentless workout. This was the 1st time I had someone say they considered the burpee portion of the workout the rest part. Renu and Matt (pictured above) are hard-core athletes in this class and set the pace for everyone to chase. Great job today!!!

Monster = hands on kettlebell on the ground, jump back into a sprawl, perform a pushup, jump back into sumo deadlift high pull stance, perform a sumo deadlift high pull, then perform an American swing. All the above movements equal 1 rep.

Try this workout at home. Choose a kettlebell weight that is challenging to swing overhead.
3 rounds--
8 Monsters
