The wall came down at our new location. I dropped in yesterday afternoon to see how it looked. See for yourself:
3 x Rounds
5 perfect squats (facing the wall) => 10-second hold at the bottom of the squat => 5 perfect squats (facing the wall) => 10-second hold at the bottom of the squat => box jump snake (line up 5 boxes jump down up to next) => 2 cartwheels => 2 strict pull-ups => 200-meter run
