        stretching, teaching and then 15-20 min at end is hard core, give it your all. I like it, but it does becaome something you think about a lot.

      • I was 150 wall balls. So you have this 14 lb ball for women and you have to squat into a full squat almost to the ground and explode up and hit a target 9 feet up on the wall....(more) 1 hr 30 min ago
        And repeat 150 times. If you mess up squat or don't hit target, it doesn't count. It's amazing for legs, butt, shoulders, core, but it's also mental to be able to do it, and I could barely walk when I left. Im fine now, but still upset and show poorly I did.
