Coaching Tips: Put who you think will be the fastest into the lineup first. The first round will probably have teammates 2 & 3 waiting a bit so don’t worry about rushing to finish.  As the rounds go on, the first two people will get a bit more of a lead and there will be less ‘waiting’.  If you are behind someone, slow your pace down so you don’t finish hard and get stuck standing around. Communication is the key – so everyone knows how to pace.
Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: none
