What you'll need: Cups, Chair, Toy Ball

  1. Start with two sets of Cardio-Style Movement. Set up plastic cups in lieu of cones or route markers and run back and forth between the cones with three progressions.
  2. Shift to a lateral movement using the cups, with three progressions.
  3. Use a chair for strength and stability training the way you would a barre or weight machine at the gym. In this position, you can perform several movements (you can hold a ball or place it between your thighs for extra challenge:)
    -Rear lunge
    -Rear lunge with a knee left
    -Rear lunge with a leg extension or slow kick (Katalin’s pick: lunge, then shift into a single leg-balance)
  4. Use the seat of the chair for lateral or side lunges (either create a progression or use it as an interval/miniature circuit.)
