The Thang:

You and your partner are both friends and enemies – aka FRENEMIES – today:

You are enemies because: Each round you’ll face off against your partner in a race to finish the assigned exercise.

Each round…
One partner will complete a high rep count of an exercise, while the other partner does a mix of cardio and lower reps. The partner who finishes first wins. Then you’ll switch and repeat. 
That set (i.e. 2 cycles) = a single round.

-Flip and repeat-
