I need to get a second 24k bell

Unexpectedly training from home tonight, i don’t have 2 24K bells so doing another Strength in Motion workout was out so i dug out the copy of the Art of Strength Enter the Kettlebell Workbook that I have but have never used. I flipped to the last workout and did it.

C&P + Row ladder to 5 14:56 176 went well

Swinges 25/25 24K 31:35 181
Rest 33:00 150 I had to go for chalk
Swinges 25/25 24K 34:40 184
Rest 41:00 141
Swinges 25/25 24K 42:40 180
Rest 45:00 145
Swinges 25/25 24K 46:46 179 I actually set the bell down with 6 reps to go, unwilling to go on. I took a couple breaths and finished it up.
5 Minutes later 52:00 110

The Clean and Presses weren’t as bad as I expected they would be. I came through those thinking, it this is the last workout in the series, I’m glad I didn’t spend more time going through it. Then came the swings. Anthony never said whether these were supposed to be one hand or two. I assume he meant two since he just said 25 and not 25/25 or 25 L/R but i decided to got for One handed doing 25 each side. That definitely made it a workout.
