how bout helen?

3 rounds for time

400 meter run
1.5 pood Kettlebell swing x 21
Pull-ups 12 reps

Well I am thinkin bout takin on this girl someday soon but had a quick question?? i recently jus bought my first kettlebell, but its a 2 pood/ 70.5 lb.... since the w/o is askin 21 reps of a 1.5 pood, how many reps should i take out for subbing the 2 pood? its obviously more weight, so i am thinkin that a few reps should prolly be taken off? if not i guess ill try an run through the beast wit the 2 pood until i buy my next 1.5 pood! thanks everyone!
...excuse me while i kiss the sky...

For Helen, I would do 17 reps with 70.5 lbs.

Re: how bout helen?

i would say 15 reps is about good, also because it is divisible by 3 so you can break it up if need be.
