Assignment Overview

  • Today you are going to work on TEAMWORK. 
  • Here are the three TEAMWORK tips that I want you to practice today:
  • Be loud when you lead your partner.
  • Go through the commands quickly. 
  • Lead by great example.

Section 2: Skill-building drill (Do three sets)

  • Be the coach: You will build your TEAMWORK skills by coaching your partner through an exercise of your choice. When you lead, follow these steps: 1.) Say the name of the exercise; 2.) Say how many reps you will do; and 3.) Lead by counting out each rep. Switch partners.  
  • Lumber jacks – You will practice teamwork by kicking targets back and forth with your partner 10 times each leg.

  • Ski’s for 10 reps each – Stand with feet together. Place your hands on your knees. While keeping your knees together, move them in a large circular clockwise motion, then switch directions.
  • Side lunges for 10 reps – Stand with feet together. Step out to the side with one foot. Bend your knee while keeping your hands on the floor. Alternate sides.
