*Set Gym Boss or Interval App to: 20s work time, 10s rest, 8 sets, 30s transition time after all 8 sets are complete

*This will be a tough TABATA session due to the hybrid nature of the movements- the goal was to find movements that take advantage of multiple joints to burn more calories and require a higher amount of motor skill. This will prepare campers for functional activities of daily living. 

TABATA: Perform each exercise for 20s with 10 s rest for 8 sets total, complete 1 exercise for 8 sets and move to the next one
