    Partner and group exercises for bootcamps?

    I'm starting a bootcamp in January and have plenty of exercises for people to do but I'm looking for some more that can be done with partners or the full group. Here's what I've got so far...

    Partner: med ball chest pass, situp ball pass, back to back seated rotation passes, plank with hand touch, wheelbarrow.

    Group: All I have is med ball seated rotations with the whole group in a circle with one or more balls going around, tug of war, and everyone lined up side by side in plank reach out and touch the persons hand beside them in order through the group.

    Any suggestions?

    Inb4 someone suggests that "happy couple workout"

    For my group classes I usually break up the group and have 3 excercises going at once and then I have them rotate every so often. I have never tried a movement were they are all working together as you described. I also break up the class into teams and have them compete in a movement as a team. This is very popular.

    I have seen stuff like...
    one dose plank others jump or step over for 30sec-1min
    burpees to high five's ( works really good with 3ppl)
    push ups to high fives

    or just do stations, that also works very good! its hard to come up with an exercise 3 people could do at the same time lol

    Squats, one personal does a static squat whilst the other does goblet squats for x amount of time.

    Do you have any heavy lifting stuff?
    Sprints and take covers etc.

    Soooooo much you can do its amazing. You're only stifled by your creativity, e main thing about boot camps though is to make sure it's fun for owe attending or you will not have one for very long

    Group push-ups, where you form a square with four people, and everybody has his feet on top of somebody else's shoulders.
    Some exercise where you need to pass an object on to the next person - e.g. you have them do push-ups on a med ball, then roll it to their partner and do normal push-ups.

    Some outdoor stuff (or have a big gym!)
    I have people do an indian run. People run lined up, ball starts with 1st person. Pass ball overhead to person behind you. When it reaches last person they run the ball to front of line.

    Group relays. Set a cup 20-30 seconds away with 8 numbers in it. Person runs to grab a number and brings it back. Each number is a different exercise like push ups. Everyone does pushups for as long as the next person takes to get a number. Has a lottery/luck feeling to it that just makes things feel interesting..."What are we going to get next?" Usually size the groups so each person runs twice. Faster running = less time doing pushups, so there is incentive.

    Have group contests: Who can hold the longest plank or wall squat? Naturally challenges the strongest people and the weakest get the break they need anyways. Might reward winner by letting them break through the following exercise.

    A couple friends of mine ran a girls only boot camp. I made a little video for them so they could advertise. Here are some of the various exercises they had the girls do. I've never done a boot camp so I have no idea what they are called. So its easier just to post the video.

    Every movement can be done in a group setting if you use your imagination to apply it. For example if I have two clients and I want to really be tortureous i'll do something like this.

    One client holds a 45 lbs plate above their heads
    Other client does pushups

    They need to reach 200 pushups together.

    Rules:
    Reps only count if the 45 plate is above head with body straight
    Clients only switch movements when the person holding the weight can no longer hold it with proper form. I call for the switch, they don't

    Yeah I have people hold a sandbag or some thing above their head and do lunges whilst the other empties himself ona punching bag.

    The day you run out of exercises you can think of is the day you can stop being a PT, in my book.
