A Brand X Method™ Kids Workout

WARM-UP:
BXK Limbo plus math facts – Ask each child to recite a true math fact before each limbo turn

FOCUS:
Paused squat – practice pause at appropriate depth (different for each child; remember only as deep as safe movement is maintained)

GET READY:
1:00 each side – couch stretch
1:00 – child’s pose

CONDITIONING:
8:00-12:00
Follow the Spartan Leader – Create an obstacle course for the workout that will allow for a variety of movements at different points. Explain the route through the course to the kids and have them go continuously for about 3-4 minutes. Then have kids take turns designing their own way to move through the course. All kids follow each child’s version through one time.

GAME:
Knock Stuff Over w/ 2 DSDS buy-in and rolling only – Depending on class size, line up 2-4 pairs of cones 15’ apart. Place each pair 3’-4’ apart to create safe lanes. Label start cone as #1 and exercise cone as #2 (cones can be identified during whiteboard description). Place 2 Dynamini medicine balls at each Cone #1. Stack the packages approximately 12’ beyond the second cones. This stack is referred to as “Stuff Mountain” and can be identified as such on the whiteboard. Divide kids into 2-4 groups as class size dictates (we recommend no more than 5 players per group) and line them up behind Cone #1. On “Go,” the first player in each line carries medicine balls to Cone #2 one at a time. After both medicine balls are at Cone #2, the buy-in exercises are performed, the medicine ball is picked up and rolled at Stuff Mountain. If Stuff Mountain is partially or totally knocked over, play stops and all active players do a victory lap around the field of play to give trainers time to restack the mountain and return medicine balls to Cone #1. Play progresses through the line.
