Wednesday 4/1 - Flex Your Muscles

Strengthen Your Muscles with These Exercises

1. Bench step-ups: Step right foot, then left, up onto a low bench, then step down. Switch your starting side with each set.

2. Burpees: From standing, squat down, place your hands on the ground, and jump your feet back into a plank position. Lower body to the floor for a push-up. Push back up to plank. Hop feet back in and stand up.

3. Cartwheels: A blast! If anyone can’t pull them off, just try to approximate the move.

4. Crab walks: Sit with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground; place palms on the ground behind you. Lift hips a few inches and walk forward on your hands and feet like a crab, then walk backward.

5. Crab toe touches: From your crab position, lift the opposite left leg and right arm and try to touch your toes. Lower and repeat on the other side.

6. Handstands against a wall: Make it a game and see who can hold it the longest.

7. Inchworms: Bend forward at the hips and place hands on the ground with knees slightly bent, then walk them forward until you’re in a plank position. Now walk feet in to meet your hands and stand back up.

8. Planks: Lie on the ground on your belly, chest lifted off ground. Flex your feet (toes on the floor), engage legs, and lift the body up, balancing on forearms and toes. Keep the entire body strong and butt in line with shoulders and heels. Hold.

9. Supermans: Lie facedown, with your arms and legs extended. Slowly lift your arms and legs off the ground as high as you can; keep the neck relaxed and look down at the ground. Hold, then lower.

 

Thursday 4/2 - Minute to Win It Games

1. Defeating Gravity - Try to keep a balloon or ball in the air for one minute. Don’t let it touch the ground. 

2. Cup Stacking Challenge - Use plastic cups to build towers. Then challenge someone to see who can build their castle the fastest. 

3. Builders and Bulldozers - Collect 20 plastic cups or bowls. Place half them right-side-up and the other half upside down around a room. A builder will turn the cups that are upside down to the right-side-up position. A Bulldozer takes the right-side-up cups and turns them upside down. Play a song for 1 minute and see who has more cups right-side-up or upside down. 

4. Card Throwing - Get a large bowl and playing cards. Stand about 5 feet away from the bowl and try to throw the cards into the bowl. See how many you can get. Challenge yourself by moving the bowl further and further away. 

5. Traffic Jam - Push a bottle or potato across the floor with your nose. See how fast you can do it. Set up different obstacle courses and challenges for added fun. 

6. It’s Not Easy Being Green - Set a timer and see how many green items from around the house you can collect in 1 minute. Challenge someone in your house to play with you.
