Three Cups – Use teams or individuals, 3 overturned jump boxes or similar receptacles, and a lacrosse ball. Ask kids to lay on their tummies face down and cover their eyes while trainer hides the lacrosse ball under one of the boxes. Ask kids to do any box movement (eg, squats, step-ups, jumps, incline push-ups) x 5-10 reps, and the fastest good mover gets to guess which box the ball is under.
