A Brand X Method™ Kids Workout
Simon Says – Use blocked squats and air squats. Remind children what will need to change, i.e., foot position.
Air squat – Hips start first. Practice “waiting in the outfield” hinge position and squat. Review partner position for practice work.
1:00-2:00 Samson stretch each side
2:00 alternating Superman-hollow
2:00 alternating one-legged hops, anyway
2:00 flutter kicks
2:00 partner-facing blocked squats
Knock Stuff Over w/blocked squat and side-to-side hop buy-in – 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 performs buy-in then 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. Use Bear crawl in “victory lap.”
