Continue increasing reps by 2 each round until time is complete.
The goal on this workout is to find a manageable pace. Only rest during the transitions between the KB Swings and the Runs for the first half of the workout. You're eventually going to have to rest as the KB gets to a higher volume.
Choose a KB loading that allows you to perform at least 20 in a row, even with the reps before that you performed that may have fatigued you. The KB Swings will tax the hamstrings and the Runs will slow down. Instead of trying to go unbroken on each set of Swings and then in turn, sandbagging the Shuttles, try to take strategic, early breaks on the KB Swings so they don’t reach failure and then push the pace on the Runs.
