Play “Knock Stuff Over”
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 “stuff” 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 camper does 3 burpees and 2 squats, then picks up a medicine ball, performs a spin and throws the ball at Stuff Mountain attempting to knock stuff over. 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 re-stack the mountain and return medicine balls to Cone #1. Play progresses through the line.
Players are advised not to pick up medicine balls while trainer/teacher is stacking.
“Stuff “may be comprised of empty boxes, small gymnastic or martial arts pads, abmats, foam rollers or other soft light stackable objects.
