By Barbara Hummel to Set of the Week | Jul 31, 2009 09:27AM

This week's set is actually several short sets that we combined into a stations workout for Masters practice this morning. The hula-hoop station was hilarious. If you don't have this exact list of equipment, just improvise with whatever cool equipment or challenges you can think of.
