A Brand X Method™ Kids Workout
Monthly Focus for February 2017
Foundational Movement: Blocked squat/box squat with holds and pauses
Physical Literacy: Catching
Accessory Movement: Knees-to-elbows, planks and hollows
Discussion Topic: Nutrition
Tortoise and the Hare – In a race format, walking lunge vs lateral plank; distances may be varied based on movement to keep race close
Box squat – Trainer used chalk to mark 1”-2″ spots on boxes at point of contact for average child’s calf. Ask kids to make sure they have a chalk spot on their legs after squatting.
1:00 – down dog
1:00 each side – twist stretch on back (arms out, cross one leg over, knee bent at 90 degrees, try to touch knee to ground keeping torso as flat as possible)
3:00 – 10 jumping jacks => 10 mountain climbers
2:00 – box squats
1:00 – hollow holds w/dodgeball
Plank Ball – Kids hold a plank position in a circle about 10’-12′ in diameter depending on class size. While the music is on, players must maintain the plank and pass the “hot potato” with a single hand or a head-butt. When the music stops, the player who last touched the potato must go to the center of the circle and perform a designated exercise for 3 to 5 reps. Play resumes after the exercise is complete.
