Playing with the Rhythm

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 9793)

This one is in four blocks that alternate intensity -- do each block twice for a symmetrical workout. Step is horizontal.


                        N
                  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
                W x            x E
                  xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
                        S

All blocks start at SW side of bench, facing E.

Block #1:

Repeat entire block and you will end up back where you started.

Block #2:

Block #3:

Repeat entire block and you will end up back where you started.

Block #4:

(If people's knees don't like the stomp & over, 3-2-1- hold bit, tell them to do 2 over the tops (8) and they will stay on track with the rest of the class)

Repeat entire block and you will end up back where you started.

*The weave: Just like over the top, except the outside leg crosses over the bench and steps down first, with the other foot then stepping down beside it. If people don't like it, tell them to just do over the top, adding propulsion to build the intensity if they like.

**Crossover ski step: I'm sure other people have other names for this. It's just over the top with 2 back lunges from the step before you exit on the other side. (up,up, lunge, lunge, down,down).

***Ski turn: Same as above. It's just a turnstep with 2 back lunges from the step before completing the turn and exiting.

****Stomp and over: Thought this block up during a bout of insomnia. You just stomp on the bench (2) and then vault over the bench (2), ending up in a mirror reversal of the first stomp position.

*****3-2-1- hold: This time the vault over the bench (above) is done at twice the speed, three times, holding the third for a count of 2.

As always, email me for any clarifications or just to chat -- I love hearing from people! And thanks to everyone out there for continuing to share your great patterns. You've bailed me out a million times!
