The Circuit: 

YHC grabbed a few ideas from Ebert & Rocking Chair to come up with this circuit.  I was ready with seven stations and seven exercises, but with only 4 PAX, quickly eliminated the rope station, (since we’ll be doing the Sausage Factory on Thursday), the pull-up station, (“if you can’t do it, don’t Q it” comes to mind here…UGH!), and the leg station. Due to time limitations, we had to cut it off after the first exercise of the seventh round.

Station 1: “Timer Station” Farmers carry two blocks approximately 50′. With each rotation, YHC increased the distance by 10 paces. Experience gained has shown this may be too much, but it worked well for only 4 PAX. With more PAX, it should be decreased so as not to run out of time.
