    10 rounds with 10# wall ball and 33# bar for good mornings. And 43#-48#-50# for the press section. I went with 25# kettlebell for the swings. I can definitely do 50 with 35 unbroken (did it in a minute and a half last time I tried) but since I was glutened earlier this week I wanted to keep things light.
