Coaching Tips: ‘Advanced’ partners may do ‘partner deadlifts’, but most people should plan on doing one person on the bar at a time. Partner wall balls are counted each time the ball hits the target (so about 15 per person), ‘resting’ partner doesn’t need to squat. That said, one person may do more reps if it makes sense for strategy purposes. For the lunges, one person must hold the dumbbell overhead while the other person lunges along side. On the med ball pass sit ups, the ball only needs to come to the chest (not all the way to the floor over the head). Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
