Rocket Jumps can be used as part of the warm-up routine or as a stand-alone exercise. Rocket jumps get the heart pumping and the lungs working. Rocket jumps use the explosive power of the calves and quads to propel the body upwards. The deltoids lift the arms and the core stabilises the body in the air and towards landing. Bending the knees upon landing prevents jarring of the back.
The Balance mat focuses on fine motor skills and concentration. The exercise is a progressive one where points of contact are reduced until the only point of contact is one leg. The exercise difficulty can be increased by including a blindfold.
The benefits of the hula hoop are sometimes overlooked; but carried out properly, hula hooping can provide a significant body workout. Core muscles are engaged to create the oscillating movement which also benefits the lower back, in turn increasing the range of spinal movement, strength and flexibility. Glutes, quads and hamstrings are engaged in the action as well as, to a lesser degree, the arms. The brain is engaged due to the concentration required to maintain the rhythmic and constant movement of the hoop.
Press-ups are a tough exercise to carry out well, but when done correctly work many muscles. The triceps (back of the arms) are the main arm muscles engaged, although deltoids (shoulders) get a workout too.
With the Press-up mat, the pectoral (chest) muscles are targeted and the abdominals are engaged due to the fact that the abdominals are used to keep the body straight.
It is hard to push the entire body weight up from the floor using only the arms, and so a good introduction to a press-up is to kneel and push the body up with knees on the floor. Once this is mastered, the progression is to a full press-up.
The lunge is a lower-body exercise that works several muscle groups at once. The targeted muscles include the glutes along with the hamstrings and quadriceps. The calf muscles engage at the thrust whilst the abdominal muscles and back muscles act as stabilizers.
The target mats are part of the shuttle run collection. However, they can also be used for other challenges. Each mat is 500mm x 500mm. The target mats are designed to be placed along the shuttle runs arrows at varying intervals. For example, if all arrow mats are used, then the run length is 6 metres (20 feet) and so a target mat can be placed at 3 metres and 6 metres. More target mats and arrow mats can be purchased to increase the run length or double up on players. Target mats can be used in the games and challenges such as in 'Chain' or 'Ladder' where bean bags are placed on the target mats following various challenges.
Carry bags come with a strap at either end so that children can help with the tidying up and putting away. Each mat weighs only 2.5kg, but increases cumulatively. We suggest using two bags per set so that the children can work together to put the mats away. Bags are made from lightweight but strong nylon with a zip all the way around the bag to enable ease of tidying.
Each Bag can carry 10 Action Mats.
