hey guys i was wondering for the metcon, what percentage of bodyweight should be used for the kb swings? i was gonna opt out for 1.5 pood but just wanted to know if there is a certain percentage.

25% or so. your usual swing weight if you have one.

Greg, I'm really enjoying your WODs. I did 120 for the C&Js and 60 for the muscle sn. Got 5:26 for met con with 2 pood KB. However, I've never done hanging leg raises correctly (according to the Catalyst Exercise video section), so I had to opt for doing them on rings with kipping. Future workouts will definitely include correct HLRs.

Whats up guys, training is going well. In the 2nd week of a 10 week cycle I saw that you guys did back in April. First time out, I figured 10 as oppose to 16 weeks would be a good intro into the world of Olying(is that a word)lol.

Anyway, will keep you guys posted and thanks for all of your help getting the set to me. And thanks Aimee for the advice, I figured that about the % and the ice is a DEF!!
