Partner & Team Exercises

I am teaching a boot camp. I am looking for partner and team type interactive exercises and drills that I can do, or better yet combos and routines. For example wheel barrel walking. One person gets into a push up plank position. The other person lifts the plank person's legs. They proceed to walk forward as if the plank person is a human wheel barrel.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Re: Partner & Team Exercises

I was also trying to come up with partner workouts too, but came up short of ideas.

partnered:
body rows
pistols
sit ups

medicine ball catches
fireman carry relays/squats

Just saw this video the other day (CF Hampton Roads). However, some of their exercises are done with a barbell and I believe you are looking for something with minimal equipment.

Trevor-type WODs also seem to be a real popular favorite.

Re: Partner & Team Exercises

The Dirtbag Mile:

Four sandbags, your choice of weight.
Five team members.
Move all of them on mile.

The type and amount of weight, distance and number of members can be adjusted of course. The key point is to make sure that the number of things to carry is one less than the number of people on a team.

Stretcher carries also work well, five people and a stretcher, one person in it at all times.

Re: Partner & Team Exercises

I think the tango would be better. You could scale it with the waltz

Re: Partner & Team Exercises

Med ball madness:

Requires:
1 medicine ball (Dynamax preferable, I did it with a 6#)
2 people (competitiveness mandatory)
1 field of play with marked boundries at each end of one axis (I used a soccer field)

Description:
Both players start at the same end of the field.
Set a timer for 20 minutes (or however long you want). Start the timer.
One player starts with the med ball and throws it as far down the field as possible.
Both players sprint to the ball.
The other player picks up the med ball and throws it as far down the field as possible.
Both players sprint to the ball.
The first player picks up the med ball and throws it as far down the field as possible.
Repeat until the med ball is thrown (or rolls) over the line and out of the field of play.
When the above happens, both players sprint to the end of the field (over which the ball rolled). The player that threw the ball gets to stop and turn around (and rest) at the end of the field while the other player must continue sprinting to the med ball and then throw it back into play. He then sprints to the ball as normal.
Once the med ball crosses back into the field of play, the resting player must sprint to the ball, pick it up and throw it as normal.
Repeat the above up and down the field for the allotted time.

Re: Partner & Team Exercises

That reminds me of Hoover Ball. You need a volleyball court or something similiar and a medicine ball or dynamax. I recommend using someone else's.

It's like volleyball, but with far fewer rules. You can catch the ball and then throw it (you kind of have to most often) and score the same way as volleyball. Actually that's pretty much all the rules.
