My latest game idea for Bootcamp Outdoor Class was "Snakes and Ladders". Inspired by the popular - I wanna say - kids game, I made my own template. I guess, I actually haven't played the game much because for whatever reason, I was told that "snakes"actually mean down, and "ladders" mean up. Well, I like snakes and it made more sense to climb "up" out of the snake to be free? No?
Anyway, I changed it in order to not confuse the poor participants.
I divided my Bootcampers into two teams. One team would be heads, one team would be tails. As it turns out the team decided to play ladies vs. gentlemen. I prepared 10 different exercises which would repeat themselves, so 11 would be the same exercise as 1, etc. Both teams had to do the same exercise, according to which field they landed on for 20 repetitions. So if the guys rolled a 44, both teams were doing 20 squat kicks.
Here are the exercises:
Warm up: list 10’s- squats, lunges, deadlift, jumping jack, shoulder circles, 2x
Snakes and ladders 20’s:
1- reverse fly standing
2- push up
3- lunge kneel to stand
4- squat kick
6- single leg row standing
7- jack knives
8- side plank side crunch
9- front/side raise
10- single leg hops
Let me tell you, there were a lot of push ups ;)
The ladies won as the guys were hogging all the snakes!
It took about an hour to complete including stretches and warm up.
