Sonia's Quick Change II (Quick Basic Step/Sculpt/Drill)

This is a [Other] pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15473)

The concept of this routine is to move quickly between a short combo, a strength move, and a drill. **QT stands for Quick Transitions. These are the 32 counts used to move you from combo to strength to drill and back again quickly. I have given suggestions for transitioning between the parts to keep the body moving, but you can use whatever you want. Each Quick Change set should take about 3 1/2 minutes (this would be with music at 128 bpms).

I don't break down the combos as they are very basic and should be quick (128 bpms = 1 minute). Anything you think your class needs to learn you can teach in the warm-up or substitute another move! If you want some breakdown try to keep the combos to no more than 2 minutes.

The step is horizontal. You also need dumbbells. Combos are 64 count, tapless, and self-reversing.

Place your weights off the end of the step on the right - leave enough room so that you can do an L-step safely.

QUICK CHANGE WARM-UP

*I used the Cool-Down (Quick Set VI) as part of the warm-up; plus I taught the Triple Rocking horse and reviewed the Rock to The Top. Include upper body movements but no stretching please! (8-10 minutes)

*QUICK STRENGTH

*Place the right foot on the step and bring the left toes to the edge of the step. 16x, squat down as you lift the weights overhead using a 4/4 count. 16x, switch feet positions, squat and chest presses, 4/4 counts. (approximately 1 minute plus time to switch the feet).

**QT: Double step touch right/left/right, squat down and release the weights, double step touch left/right/left back in place, step touch to fill the 32.
