Saw this on Instagram and thought it looked fun. Brandi went first, which was a mistake because her grip was shot for the dead hangs and my grip is much better. We did 25s for the swings, 20s for the lunges, 9-9-6-6 for pull-ups, 10s for squats, and 5s for the V-ups. Took us 12:59.

Partner workout with B. For the jump rope and lunges we each went while the other rested. The dumbbell movements were paired up, so the partner rested until both movements were done. For the abs, each partner was working at the same time and then we switched. I started the first round and then we alternated who started every round after that. Took us 34:01.
