Art of Strength released their Kettlebell Essentials Test today:

highpull ->snatch X 6
press X 6

clean ->long cycle X 12
Figure Eight (to switch hands)
Right====

press X 6
squat X10
clean ->long cycle X 12
Turkish get down X 1
Time 6:00
Max HR 177
AVG HR 165

It’s a pretty good little 6 minute workout. They didn’t say what kind of numbers they were going for, I probably ran a little low since I had already done the rowing workout. They built in plenty of rest. They say all the exercises are 30seconds a piece, that leave you two minutes to rest and to do you Turkish and figure eight. Bear in mind, this is not supposed to be some killer, man maker workout. It is an Essentials test, meaning can you do the basic stuff. I recommend giving it a try.
