Do you remember when you were a child and going to the park? I can recall playing on the old school tire playgrounds and then later on the transition to the modern metal and plastic style ones. One of my favorite pieces of equipment was the see-saw; I used to try to make it into something competitive and endeavored to get the person to hit the ground. The only drawback to see-saw was its difficulty in trying to use it by myself. I would get one rep in and that would be it.




Thankfully today’s workout is not exactly like the old see-saw at the park. In that it is one that you can do by yourself and not feel goofy as a result!



  Weekly Workout: The See-Saw



This week’s workout is a blend of ballistics and grinds to both build strength and power while burning fat and conditioning you for life! This workout is a bit more complicated than our usual ones.  So if you aren’t ready for it, then do another one of our workouts from  previous posts on this blog. Finally, if you don’t know how to do a see-saw press and have trained the double kettlebell press: click here for a quick tutorial. Then Get to it!


This session is done by  doing:

10 double swings
5 cleans
5 Racked squats
10 see-saw presses each side


Men use 16 to 24 kg
Women 12 to 16 kg


Continue this for 10 -15 minutes and get in as many quality reps as you can!


The guidelines for success:



  • Do all of your sets and reps with quality form. Crap only produces crap!
  • Breathe by matching your breathing with each pattern
  • Rest as much as you need to and no more.
  • Tough it out while working out ( keep in mind the results)
  • Enjoy the fat blasting effect  and raised metabolism.
