This Superhero sequence is perfect for a class that that may have just a little too much energy to focus, because it requires both strength and concentration. Try it to help calm the excitement with back to school first thing in the morning or right after lunch / recess!
What it is: This is a sequence to help energize little kids! It’s a combination of Hero 1 (Warrior 1), Hero 2 (Airplane) and Lightning Fingers (squat).
Why we love it: It’s a great energizing sequence that helps strengthen the ankles, calves, thighs and spines. Little kids will love the superhero theme!
