1 Belt and 2 Pads Per Line
1 per Line
The students will practice STRENGTH by being able to battle with another student to try to reach the objective, students will be physically challenged by having to engage their whole body to win the game.
CHOICES – The instructor can ask the students to pick a partner in ten seconds. This gives them the chance to work with the people they want to work with, which can motivate them to beat their friend even more. The choice in the activity will also empower the students, as they will feel more in control over what they are doing.
RESPONSE INHIBITION – The students must be able to crawl to the pad in front of them, despite someone pulling them in the opposite direction. This works on their ability to complete a task despite distraction, as they cannot give up even though someone is pulling them the other way.
Divide your students into pairs.
Step 2 - Setting Up the Drill:
Have the instructor tie a strong knot on the back of both of the student’s belts, then they will spread apart so the belts are tight.
Step 3 - Explain the Rules:
When the instructor says “GO” students will attempt to bear crawl for the pad that is 4 ft in-front of them the other student will attempt to resist.
The student will have 30 seconds to crawl to the pad if they get it then the other person does 5 push-ups.
Have the students battle best of 3 switching between rounds, if the score is 1-1 rock paper scissor for who does what in round 3.
Step 4 - Takeaways:
Don’t stop moving.
Keep your eyes up on the pad.
Take big steps to get the pad.
Continue so that each student has at least 2 turns.
