Levels 0/1
For these circuits, you should have about 30 seconds rest each minute (except for the first minute–the getups should take almost a whole minute for two reps).
Please note, I have changed the number of “required” sets for these workouts. This is to make explicit what should always be the case: the Level 0/1 program is very demanding, but it is also meant to be a place where you can LEARN and REFINE your fundamental strength skills. If you are rushing to get through the movements because you think you have to complete everything or you aren’t getting a good enough workout, you are approaching the training with the wrong attitude. I want you to get better at the movements, I don’t care how many sets and reps you do. The program is a rough template based on what I believe a very fit person could reasonably complete in the amount of time given. If you have injuries, limitations, are new to strength training, or are just having a bad day, you probably won’t and probably shouldn’t try to do everything as written. Ask your coach to review the movements you are unfamiliar with while the rest of the group gets started. Take an extra minute break between sets if you need to. Spend two minutes on one exercise. Spend 15 minutes working on squat mobility or improving your overhead position. Or go for it and hit everything–but only if you can perform your last rep of your final set with the same competence and control as your first.

Kettlebell Snatch Test
5 Minutes AMRAP

You must achieve a full, locked out position overhead every rep, with your bicep/upper arm in line with your ear while your knees and hips are fully extended.
Lower levels may perform the test with a Half-Snatch (take the bell up in one movement, but bring it to the rack position before hiking it back for the next rep)

L4 – 24/18, 100+ reps, one continuous set without setting the bell down at any point or resting with it in the rack position (overhead is ok)
L3 – 22/16, 100 reps, no half snatch, set the bell down as needed
L2 – 18+/12+, 80 reps, half snatch is ok, set the bell down as needed
