Materials: A wall, bars for pull ups etc.
This is a workout concept that can be done solo or with a partner – but the design needs to be adjusted for whichever you choose. The only thing that has to be the same is that the number of repetitions for each exercise decreases from 99 with ten less for each round until 11.
Type up the workout for all to see on a wall or something visible and set the rules. Decide if they are alone and if they are allowed to do parts of one and come back to finish later – we suggest that it’s not allowed – it’s part of the “fun” to struggle with one of the sets.
Here are two examples:
Solo – take breaks when needed.
– 99 Calf raises 88 Abdominal crunches
– 77 Squats 66 Seconds of plank
– 55 Push Ups 44 Lunges (2×22)
– 33 Side crunches (2 x 33) 22 Burpees
– 11 Handstand Push Ups (can be scaled to be supported by partner)
With a partner. One works and one takes a break.
– 99 Push Ups 88 Jumping Squats
– 77 Calf raises on a bar 66 Squats with partner in piggy back
– 55 Pull Ups 44 Dragon Squats
– 33 Drop Jumps – Chest high 22 Muscle Ups
- andstand Push Ups EACH (can be scaled to be supported by partner)
COACHING KEY POINTS
– Make sure they understand each exercise and can check for good quality for each.
– Motivate participants to continue and have back-up stuff ready for injured people (maybe just have them skip stuff and repeat some of the others after).
