Competition in the weight room
I am looking for new ideas to create a sense of competition in our weight room. In the past we have had some activities at the end of a session or week such as physical or mental test to encorporate competition. One example is our "battle of death" which is two individuals on a wrestling mat with one small towel. Both athletes grab the towel with both hands, and wrestle the towel away from the other. When one hand comes off the towel its over. If anyone has an idea please forward to email@example.com.]
Thanks in advance.

In the past I have had athletes have inchworm races. We used the Power Wheel (Power Wheel II - put on their feet) and ran some pretty intense side-by-side races. However I have some great ideas for the summer program that my teams have used. Got very intense and had the team competing at max effort. Let me know if you want some summer ideas.
