The Blue Falcon Workout is Great for a Buddy Workout

FlutterkickWorkout600

I call this workout the Blue Falcon Workout, as it works best if you have a buddy to push you (or make you work harder because he/she is slower than you).

How it Works

You have distance events and 100 repetition events to do as a team. While one buddy does the distance event, you do the 100 rep event -- neither can stop until both are finished with the 100 reps and 100m. Sometimes, you will find you have to go farther than 100m if your buddy is not done with the 100 reps, or you may have to add more reps if your buddy is not finished with 100m.

Then you get to switch events. Both buddies do the distance and repetition event at each station.

The Setup

We set up each station on a football field and run 50m and back to the starting line, where your buddy is doing the repetitions. We actually did this with 20 people and had 10 stations of two events, so large group PT is pretty fun too. Arrange the events as you wish, since there is no real easy way to mix and match distance and rep events.

Enjoy!
