The challenge is to see who can complete the following series of exercises in the least amount of time. One time through and you are done!

The Movements:

  • Butterfly Situps - Touch the ground above your head on the way back and between your legs at the top.
  • Turkish Getup - Can be performed on either side or a combo of both.
  • Burpees - No pushup or jump. Just strict burpees.
  • Tuck jump - Quads must be parallel to the floor.

    Turkish get ups are hard unless you do them all the time. Not necessarily the weight part, but the dexterity part. Need to practice these more. Need some kettlebells at home.
