Rite of Passage - Medium

Medium rite of passage workout this morning.  I was well rested.  It went like this:

Warm Up: Clean and Press 12k KB, then 16k KB, each side
20k Press Ladders: 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2
Chin Ladders (alternate sets with presses): 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2, 1/1, 2/2
2 Minutes 20k Swings: 10/10, 10/10 (set on minutes 0 and 1)

Total workout time was just over 30 minutes.  I asked around and found the secret to keeping the overall workout time short is to move through the lighter sets as quickly as possible without missing reps.  Sure enough it worked great and actually felt better than resting 1-2 minutes between sets.

I am enjoying following someone else's program.  It is so simple to just go in the garage and do what is scheduled for the day.  I appreciate the lack of complexity.
