Below are the movements and times. YHC tried to minimize rest time between sets. I targeted 15-30 seconds. And ~1 min between exercises, except warm-ups, where we went directly to the next.
– Jumping jacks: 2 minutes
– Arm circles: 1 minute (30 seconds forward, 30 seconds backward)
– Bodyweight squats: 1 minute
– High knees: 1 minute
Set 1 – Samurai Strength
Sandbag Slams (3 sets x 1 minute)
Lift the sandbag overhead and slam it down with force, engaging your core and entire body.

Use the sandbag to perform sumo deadlifts, followed by a high pull, engaging your hips and upper back.

Merkins with ruck on back
Set 2 – Agile Samurai:
Sandbag Toss (3 sets x 1 minute)
Lifted the sandbag to chest then tossed it forward, then quickly move to catch it. YHC definitely caught sand in the face, which probably came from the sandbag slams!
