Coaching Tips: Pick who can go fastest to enter into the workout first. Each subsequent teammate cannot move forward until the person in front of them finishes. If the person in front of you isn’t done yet, slow down so you do not blow yourself up and then spend an inordinate amount of time waiting. On the last round, speed up as the person in front finishes.
