A Brand X Method™ Preschool Workout
Simon Says w/floppies or blocked squats
Safe While Moving – Scatter tall cones around a play area, using one less cone than the number of kids in class. This is essentially a game of tag where kids are safe while doing a particular movement, in this case, a blocked squat, at one of the cones. However, they can be tagged while running between cones. Kids do three blocked squats at any cone then immediately move to another cone, trying to avoid getting tagged.
Farmers and Lumberjacks – Again, scatter tall cones around a play area, half upright and half knocked over. Divide the group into Farmers and Lumberjacks: Farmers are asked to keep the cones growing (standing) and Lumberjacks are asked to cut (knock) them down. All players must be moving at all times and cannot block or protect cones or touch other players. If at any point all cones are either up or down, the trainer calls freeze and the kids do 3 reps of a selected bodyweight exercise. Teams swap roles every few minutes.
