Build Up (~4:00)
0:30 Row, bike, or run
5 Swings (with the object being used in the workout)
5 Front squats (workout weight, rx = 95lbs/65lbs)

Every 4:00 for 20:00 (5 sets)
15cal/12cal Bike or row
15 Kettlebell swings (53lbs/35lbs)
15 Front squats (95lbs/65lbs)

Every 4:00 for 20:00 (5 sets)
15cal/12cal Bike/row or 200m run
15 Kettlebell or dumbbell swing
15 Kettlebell or dumbbell goblet squat

If the load is light on the goblet squat, athletes can do a double dumbbell/kettlebell front squat.

Every 4:00 for 20:00 (5 sets)
15cal/12cal Bike/row or 200m run
15 Bag/backpack swings
15 Bag/backpack front squats

Increase the reps to 20 on the front squats if the load is very light.

Every 4:00 for 20:00 (5 sets)
15cal/12cal Bike/Row or 200m run
15 Prisoner good morning jumps (hands behind the head)
15 Jumping sit-ups

Perform the eccentric phase of the prisoner good morning under control before performing an explosive jumping phase.

This is intended to be a near sprint effort on each interval. Faster intervals could be completed in under 2:00 while all athletes should strive for a variation that allows for no sets to go longer than 3:00. The loads on the swings and front squats should be light enough to complete unbroken with fast transitions.
