A Brand X Method™ Kids Workout

WARM-UP:
Knock Stuff Over w/2 blocked squat 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. Pick an animal crawl for victory lap.

Alternate one blocked squat and one broad jump on coach’s count. Cue knees stay over feet.
