Session 12 - For time

In as quick a time as possible complete 3 rounds of (see videos below):

  • 10 Alternating forward lunge (5 on each leg)
  • 10 Heel Kicks
  • 10 Tuck Jumps

This will take children approximately 6 – 10 minutes to complete. You may wish children to have counters or markers to move at the end of each round to keep track.

Easier: Instead of forward lunge do alternating knee raises, aim to get the leg at a right angle, back straight. Jog on the spot instead of heel kicks, jump on the spot instead of tuck jumps.


Things to consider

  • For Time is a workout format which means to complete a set amount of work in as quick a time as possible.
  • During dead lions encourage children to relax and switch off to ‘take themselves’ somewhere else nice so they are less likely to be distracted by the observer!


Play dead lions

Ask children to lie down on the floor in sleeping positions.  Once they are settled, they are not allowed to move.

The parent should walk around the room and try to make the sleeping lions move by making them laugh, telling them jokes etc. Once any lion moves they say their name and they must sit up and wait for the game to end.  The last child still on the floor wins!
