GTS April Challenge Tabata-A-Day Day 26

Day 26 of the GTS Tabata-A-Day Challenge 

Last week of the challenge! Here's an awesome 4 exercise slam complex utilizing one of my favorite pieces of equipment, the sandbell.  This is a great tool for trainers running groups or outdoor training. It's fun, different, and gives you the ability to perform exercises that let you carry, throw and SLAM the weight! I'll get into the other exercises at some point, but today let's get SLAMMED!
