Each week our fitness expert, CrossFit competitor and owner of New York City’s Reebok CrossFit 5th Ave, Nate Forster, lays out a quick workout that measures your level of strength, speed, power, endurance, and/or skill. Think you can “one-up” our guy? Get ready to throw down, and let’s see what you’ve got…

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:
Complete five rounds of 10 kettlebell swings and 10 toes-to-bar as fast as possible.
*Use a 32-pound kettlebell.

THE BENEFITS:
The swinging challenge only involves two moves, but both will test your body's total body strength, power, and endurance. Any athlete looking to increase his stamina and endurance will benefit from the well-roundedness of this routine.
