There’s a time and a place for well-thought-out, scientifically-backed workouts that hit their intended mark with pinpoint accuracy. Sometimes, however, you just want to blow off some steam, crush some calories and (quite literally, in this case) throw some weight around.

This two-move explosive workout is the perfect finisher to slam away the stress and earn yourself a decent sweat. Grab a kettlebell and a slam ball and work your way down the following rep ladder, as quickly as possible. You’re going to begin with 15 reps of each movement, followed by 14 of each, then 13, so on, until you reach one.

Kettlebell Swing x 15, 14, 13… etc.

With a kettlebelll between your legs, hinge at your hips, swinging the weight backward (A). Drive your hips forward to explosively blast it up to eye level (B). Let the momentum return you back into the hinge position and straight into rep two.

Ball Slam x 15, 14, 13… etc.

Squat down and grab a ball with both hands. Stand up explosively and lift the ball over head. Extend your hips and knees and come up onto your toes (A) . Contact your abs and slam the ball down to the ground as hard as possible. (B) Repeat, keeping each rep explosive.
