Early AM Step Blast

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 16196)

This is a class I teach at 6 AM - the medicine balls we use are small and more for increasing the cardio intensity than for actual strength. We add in leg or interval work to keep the heart pumping. Unfortunately, many of my early AM folks are not too choreo savvy so I have to keep it simple!

Warm Up

Using a Medicine Ball (small!)

*Static stretches if you want (I usually do a bit for early am classes).

Step #1

Floor interval/legs #1

Repeat other side

Step #2

Build it, then repeat with combo #1

Floor interval/legs #2

Make the rocking knees L-step and turn into an interval - hopping L's.

Step #3

Tack on the other 2 combos.

We wind up the class with some band work and abs. I do 45 minutes of cardio so if the breakdown didn't take as long as expected, we use the legs and the bands (eg. squat with bicep curls, lunge with row, band squat & walk sideways, etc.) to keep the heart rate up.

We often alternate step & floor combos too but there just isn't a category here for that!
