Coaching Tips: Talk to your teammates about breaking this up for your individual strengths. If you try and split it up evenly, you are doing your team a ‘disservice’ since some people will get too much rest and not enough of a challenge. All three partners should try and pick the bar up to the rack position on the front squats – YOU WILL WANT TO PRACTICE THIS BEFORE HAND! Take note of which movements are two people working at a time and plan accordingly.
Optional ‘Cash Out’: None.
