Coaching Tips: Make sure you communicate with your team, so you know who will be doing more of what movement. The key is to keep the reps moving at all times. Avoid situations where everyone needs to rest. Ideally, you’ll all use the same equipment for all of the movements, or just two loads (so everyone doesn’t need their own bar, etc.). Make sure you move as fast as possible when it is your turn, but do not let your form get sacrificed.
