Skill: Fitness
Drill: Fitness Challenge
Equipment needed: 3 numbered spots (#4,6,8)
Instructors needed: A few to monitor
Description: The students will practice their FITNESS in this drill by choosing how many reps of a given exercise they want to do. Remember, the more reps you do, the stronger you become!
Teaching SKILLZ:
INTRINSIC MOTIVATION – The instructor can explain that the amount of reps they do is up to them, so how much stronger they get today is up to them as well. If the students want to get really strong (the instructor can also pick a superhero to motivate the students to get stronger, like the hulk), then they can complete as many good reps as they can.
RESPONSE INHIBITION – The students must be able to do their exercise well, without stopping for too long or getting sloppy. This works on the ability to complete a task despite distractions, the distraction being their body getting tired.
Step 1

Step 2 – Setting Up the Drill:
Place the numbers evenly spaced at the opposite end of the mat.
