The first two AMRAPs are all about hip extension to get either the KB or plate moving.  For the final AMRAP, mark off a 25’ section on the floor.  Suitcase carry in one arm to the 25’ mark, turn around and suitcase carry back to the start.  At the start mark, switch arms, and repeat.  Keep doing this over and over for the full 3 minutes.
