This workout is an entry to this year’s Bootcamp Ideas Competition. It has been submitted by Casey Foggitt from Texas, USA.
Drill Length: 10 minutes
Drill Category: Warm Up
How it works:
Using two medicine balls of different weights, have your campers form a big circle. Start the medicine balls opposite of each other so that they aren’t close together.
Assign specific exercises to each medicine ball. (For example: 8lb medicine ball = Power Jacks and 12lb medicine ball = Frog Jumps)
Start music and have the campers squat toss the medicine balls clockwise around the circle. Stop the music and whoever is holding the medicine balls have to go to the middle of the circle and start performing the specified exercises once the music starts again.
Everyone still in the circle will stay where they are, meaning that the circle size never changes. This will make gaps so that they will have to toss the ball a little harder. Start the music, then the balls go around whoever is left in the circle while the ones in the middle are performing the specified exercises.
Stop the music, then the ones in the middle go back to the circle, while whoever was holding the medicine balls that round goes to the middle to perform the exercises.
Repeat this process for however long you’d like the warm up to be. You’ll find that you hear a lot of laughing and giggling while your back is turned to start and stop the music!
