“No Strings Attached”
30 Synchronized Box Jumps
Then, gauntlet style:
20/15 Calorie Row
40 Kettlebell Movements (1.5pd)
20 Pull Ups
At “Go!” all three team members will start box jumps together. Once the team has completed 30 synchronized reps, Athlete 1 will move to Station 1 and begin to row. Once complete, he/she will move to Station 2 and begin his/her kettlebell movements. Athlete 2 will start to row. This will continue until all athletes make it through all 3 stations. Athletes cannot move on until the station in front of them is clear. One call of the athletes have made it through the gauntlet, the team will begin a second round, starting with 30 synchronized box jumps again. Time stops when the final athlete has made it through the gauntlet for the second round. Teams can enter the gauntlet in any order and switch orders from the first to second round.
