Attention: If you are ordering a Foam Roller please get your money to Hillari ASAP! We will be putting the order in this week!

The nooners gettin their Med Ball Cleans on!

WOD

In teams of 4 or 5 complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 30 minutes of:
“Follow the Leader”
18- Row (calories)
15- Kettlebell Swings (53/35)
12- Abmat Sit-ups
9- Push Press (75/55)
6- Dumbbell Burpees (30/20)
*One member of your team starts on the rower, when he/she finishes they move on to KB swings and team member #2 jumps on the rower. The idea of the workout is to keep moving because you don’t want to log jam your team. No members are allowed to pass. Rest is rewarded by moving quick through your station and cheering on the team member ahead of you.
