October 12: Hunt and Gather

Today’s workout is inspired by Mark’s Daily Apple and the brilliantly executed “Grok feasts” and the many versions of Caveman games.  Unleash your inner Bam Bam or Pebbles and get ready to jump, crawl, run, and carry heavy things today!

Skill test: 2 minutes, max rep situps

Working as a team:
The Hunt:
4-person relay with everyone completing 2 rounds:
10m broad jump
20m bear crawl
30m medicine ball throw and run
30m sprint with medicine ball
30m sprint

The Carry
Each 4-person team will have 1 sandbag and 2 kettlebells (one light, one heavy).  At any given time, three people must be holding weight.  Cover 800m as quickly as possible; change weights as necessary.

The Gather (individual event)
In 90 seconds:
Sprint to kettlebell
Sprint back to starting position with kettlebell
Max reps goblet squats in remaining time
