The Strength / Conditioning Quotient was recently released by the World Kettlebell Club and Valery Fedorenko. It features five specific kettlebell exercises done at six minutes, with hand switches at every minute. There's a consistent five minute timed rest between exercises. The exercises are done in the following sequence and rep totals:

  • Half Snatch (18)
  • Jerk (20)
  • Push Press (20)
Rep totals caps are assigned to each exercise, and listed in parenthesis above. If rep totals are exceeded, no extra points are awarded. Each kettlebell is assigned a factor that is multiplied by the number of reps performed.
