Accumulator Workout for Large Groups!

A super effective, bodyweight only session which works perfectly for large groups and if you have limited equipment.

As the name suggests, its all about accumulating as many reps as we can in 20 minutes, similar to an AMRAP but adding 3 reps on to each round. 

I like to challenge my clients to set a benchmark for themselves and then gently give them a quiet nudge to aim a little higher, with perfect technique as always. 

The first time through they complete 3 reps, second time 6, third 9, forth 12 and so on until the end of the 20 minutes.

With only 6 exercises, this workout is really easy to coach, to add a little spice and break the boredom I throw in coaching calls when you see they are getting a little tired. 

I like to randomly go around and tap members on the shoulder and give them a different exercise and reps to complete, chosen depending on their ability. 

My super fit people may get sprints, burpees etc, and those who are less abled lunges or crunches, when reps are done, have them resume where they were in the accumulator.
