This is kind of like a dance off, and should be done with at least one other partner. The idea is pretty simple: choose a handful of exercises, choose a time frame, and try to complete as many repetitions as possible. The twist here is that your partner tries to beat your score. Here’s a sample routine:

Three rounds of:

  • Kettlebell Thruster, max reps for one minute, each side
  • Spiderman Pushups, max reps for two minutes, alternating sides
  • Chinups, max reps for two minutes, hands must not leave the bar, and feet must be off the floor

In this workout, each partner attempts each exercise for the allotted time frame. Three rounds means that each partner has three chances to beat their partner’s score.

Method #4 will run tomorrow
