Coaching Tips: Split up the work so that people with more capacity end up doing more of the work. The key is to make sure everyone is resting at the same time (when rest is needed). Keep the torso vertical to avoid blowing up the back on the squats. Elbow planks are desired for the planks, but BOTH of the other teammates must be in a plank for the reps to count. Everyone must run together, but the sandbag/plates can be split up/shared any which way.

Optional ‘Cash Out’ or Hypertrophy: None.
