Friday, April 20

Today was a "Choose Your Own Adventure" day in class. I haven't used the WOD generator in class for quite some time so today was a great day to use it. Every period I had one student volunteer to help make up the WOD for their class. I added a new component today and that was the possibility of a team/partner workout since the students have responded well to the team workouts lately. Strangely enough all three WODs were partner WODs. Another coincidence was that all the volunteers were female.
Here are the three WOD that were created:

"Nancy"
in teams of 2
AMRAP 10 min
10 Lunges
10 Burpees
10 Jumping Jacks
Students alternate exercises so while one works the other rests. This format allows the intensity to remain high during the work intervals. For example Student A does 10 Lunges and when finished Student B immediately does 10 Burpees and so on.

"Linda"
in teams of 2
AMRAP 7 min
6 Burpees
6 Situps
Teammates alternate between exercises but they can't switch exercises until all the reps are complete. The Burpees were the rate limiting factor in this WOD and allowed for a bit of a rest period for the student doing sit-ups.

"Lyttza"
in teams of 2
AMRAP 5 min
8 Mt. Climbers
8 Situps.
Teammates alternate between exercises but they can't switch exercises until all the reps are complete. The Situps were the rate limiting factor in this WOD and allowed for a bit of a rest period for the student doing Mt. Climbers. This wasn't a very good WOD.
