Will You Take the BarBend Kettlebell Swing Challenge? (Max Reps!)

The kettlebell swing is one of the best fundamental movements any athlete can master. It builds strength, tests grip, and — when done for high reps — can tax your endurance in a crazy way. 

We put our own kettlebell swing ability to the test and invited some special guests to see how their scores stacked up. Here are the details:
