Rest 2:00 between sets.
In a “giant set”, we are looking to complete the entire set in a continuous flow, with as little rest between as possible. This is not “for time”, nor an intensity where we loose the integrity to our technique, but we are moving with a purpose. Considering all three movements as, “one giant set”. Rest 2:00 between rounds.
On the front rack reverse lunges, we are stepping back into the lunge, and then standing by coming forward. This is more forgiving on the patellar tendon (versus a step-forward to start lunge), and recruits more of the posterior chain.. what we want in this movement.
On the kettlebell swings, choose as heavy of a load as possible without losing integrity of technique, or needing to break the 18 reps. We can build over the course of the three sets.
On the weighted abmat sit-ups, same theme as the swings. Heavy as possible, but without having to break up the 20 repetitions.
