Today we have two new games from Cameron Keast of Valencia, Spain. Thanks Cameron!
Set Up: I used a cheap children’s roulette wheel I bought for a couple of euros.
Bootcampers have to gamble on how many of an exercise they will have to do. Set up about 10 stations of your choice with a variety of exercises.
- Sea Turtles
- Plyo Push Ups
- 1 Arm DB Rows
- Jump Squats
- Jet Stars
- Suicide Planks
- Walking Lunges
Bootcampers have to start at a station. Spin the roulette wheel and they have to complete the number of reps that the ball lands on.
Bootcampers then choose a new station (they must do each at least once).
Repeat until 10 spins have gone for a nice 10-15min workout.
The tension is brilliant when bootcampers are standing at a dreaded exercise!
2. Hungry Hippos
Set Up: Write different exercises on tennis balls and place them in a pile.
Get your bootcampers to pair up in a circle the balls (around 15m away). When you say go, bootcampers have to wheelbarrow walk one another to the balls and collect a ball (one at a time) and go back to their starting point. There they both do the exercise on their ball before returning to collect another in the same way (swapping roles).
The game ends when all the balls have been collected and the winner is the pair with the most.
Depending on the number of balls you use you can do this as different rounds or one long game.
