Five Star Super Session Dynamic Warmup

Just got back from the Super Session in Chicago, IL.  Over the weekend, my role was strength and conditioning coach for the camp.  We  ran a highly technical speed station and a “kick your butt”" conditioning station on Satuday night.  Pictured below are images from the morning dynamic warmup on Sunday.
