5 Good Kettlebell Workouts: CALYPSO

Workout 1: CALYPSO

Completed this workout? Share:

This is an intense cardio workout to be completed with one kettlebell.

Task 1

Kettlebell combo:

  1. Swing
  2. Snatch half
  3. Squat

Switch sides for each set.

Complete 48 reps of the combo.
Complete max CrossFit burpees within the time left.

10 minutes work

Task 2

5 minutes for rest, stretching, and active recovery.

Task 3

Repeat task 1.


The full set of combos needs to be completed in task 3 for the burpees from task 1 to count. This means, for example, if in task 1 you complete the set of 48 reps within 8 minutes and 10 seconds, you have 1 minute and 50 seconds left to do as many burpees as possible and complete 30 burpees, they only count if you complete the 48 reps when task 1 is repeated. If you fail to make the 48 reps within the timeframe then the burpees from task 1 also don’t count. The switch does not count as one swing.


Your scoring is the total number of burpees from tasks 1 and 3. For example, if you complete 30 burpees in task 1 and 20 in task 3, then your total scoring is 50.
