Make it DYNAMIC!

Standard

When it comes to exercising the body and mind, whatever it is you’re doing – make it DYNAMIC!

Changing up our exercise routines decreases boredom and fatigue and increases the FUN factor.

This week we did just that in our Hopkins Core Boot Camp class –

Starting out our session with a full body warm-up, I took a couple exercises we’ve done and turned them into great team building exercises.

Ready, Set, Line Up!

Lining up in a row, we rotated passing an 8 pound medicine ball over the top of the head and between the legs. Seems simple enough, right? When you get there, this changing pattern created a fun team building exercise and a challenge for the core and mind.

Each person took their turn either hopping on one foot or both feet across the gym to a BOSU ball (soft side up), completed 10 push ups, and hustled to the back of the line.

What made this fun and unique was crowd participation – cheering and counting out teammates’ push up reps.

With these two simple exercises, we created a FUN, challenging class that left everyone feeling like they got a great workout!
