Push press – In a straight line with kids shoulder to shoulder, practice the outward travel of the knee (external rotation of femur) by having kids touch their neighbors’ knees.

Bracing – Draw, demo, and discuss; use mirror if available. Practice ribs down and belly breathing.

1-2 rounds
1:00 burpulls (burpee + pull-up)
1:00 push presses, 1#-8# dumbbells
1:00 one-legged hops
1:00 jumping jacks
1:00 overhead carry, dodgeball-6# medicine ball (focus on braced spine)
1:00 burpulls (if 1 round only)

Team races – For each team, stage one saucer cone with 4#-6# medicine ball 2 meters from tall cone target at end of 50-meter sprint. One athlete per team goes at a time, sprints 50 meters to medicine ball, throws it to knock over tall cone, then sprints back. Coach resets medicine balls before next set of kids goes.
