Today’s BrainWOD: “Blitz The King”

By | Enrichment, Exercise Demos, Games, Ignite! At Home, Ignite! At School, Ignite! In The Workplace, wod | No Comments


Set up a standard chess board.

Allow five ‘blitz chess‘ moves against an opponent (or an app.)

After five moves, the student completes an obstacle course including a lateral movement, a core-to-extremity movement, and another movement to elevate the heart rate. For example:

30 skips / 20 sideways hops over cone / 10 med ball overhead swings

…return to the board and continue. If playing a partner, the first to finish the physical portion makes the next move.
