A Minimalist Power Routine
This advanced routine will cover all the bases in 15-30 minutes.

Snatch a pair of heavy kettlebells. Lower them slowly to your chest and military press them back up. Lower them again, bring your feet closer if necessary, and do a front squat. That was a rep.

Do one every minute until you barely make it. When you put up 30 reps of the hybrid exercise in 30 minutes switch to doubles: two snatches followed immediately by two military presses and chased down with two front squats. Get up to thirty doubles and switch to another routine.

Practice the above hybrid exercise on Mondays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays and Fridays do high rep quick lifts for conditioning.

Russian kettlebell power to you!
