Then sprint down and back.  Next, pick up the sandbag and carry it down and back.  Then sprint down and back.  Last do sandbag squats for 10 reps.  Once again sprint down and back.  That was one round.  See how many rounds you can do in 30 min.  Rest as needed between movements and rounds.  Always use good form and May The Force Be With You!
