Beast Camp Session 4 with @LewisFuller – Innovation

The last session of week 1 of Beast Camp ended with a great innovative session by Coach Fuller.

The session was based of 4 exercises and a pack of cards. The exercises were Skydivers, Squat tuck jumps, lunges and wrestler press-ups (or spiderman press ups or Bends and MFs)

Each exercise was represented by a suit from the shuffled pack of cards. The athletes took turns drawing a card, the card represented the exercise. A 9 of spades for example was 9 lunges on each leg. And so on until all the cards had gone.

Tough session, but kept interesting by the random nature of the next exercise. Very innovative session and the kids enjoyed it, even though it hurt.

Coach Fuller’s greatest innovation – make them hurt and they still like you at the end. I must figure out that last bit!!

  1. Yes, good one. I have been doing sessions like this for about ten years. One of my variations is to write exercises on the white board and start turning over the cards and they do that many reps of the next exercise in line. Some days if we are doing 13 exercises burpees might be # 3,6,9. We love burpees. If a joker comes up we skip that exerise that round.

    1. Cool workouts. I’d go for a real beast if the Joker got turned, but that probably explains why I never achieve the last point.
