Farm Fresh Fitness (ORL)

We believe the best kind of workout is one that is fun, challenging, interactive and, of course, free. We try to attain those qualities in every workout that we plan. It was chilly this Wednesday by the lake, but a hearty herd showed up to make the morning matter. After a possible record long bounce, everyone chose a random farm animal from the bag, and was instructed to find their kind making only their animal sounds. This fun activity had me cracking up and it set up their teams for the workout. The session consisted of Teams Sheep, Cows, Pigs, Chickens, and Horses competing to gather eggs from the coop. They first had to decide as a team how many eggs they would try to retrieve and that allowance of eggs was pre-determined by how many exercises they were to do. In order to retrieve 1 egg, each animal had to complete 10 burpees, 20 partner pushups, and 10 partner leg throws, then a long plank while the egg was retrieved by one person. If you wanted three eggs, the work was three times as hard. read more
