Warm Up Mat
Based on 1 ratings. (View)

Details 

Warming up and indeed cooling down is a vital part of exercise. It is often over looked as being superfluous but introducing the mussels to the impending dynamic movements they are about to embark upon. Cooling down through stretching is an important part of a balanced exercise regime too and so early introduction to both is good practice.

Step Up Mat

Details 

The step up mat makes use of the ubiquitous gym bench which is good height and stable. The main muscles used are the quadriceps and the hamstrings (front and back of thighs) as well as the glutes. Core muscles are engaged to maintain stability. Step ups are a good lower body work out and repetition of the exercise helps to build strength and stamina.

Star Jump Mat

Details 

Star jumps strengthen deltoids, the large muscles at the top curve of your shoulders, and the trapezius muscles between the shoulders and neck. Star jumps also work major leg muscles, including quadriceps, hamstrings (front and back of thighs), abductors and adductors (inside and outside of thighs) and calves. Again, the core muscles are engaged to maintain balance.

Speed Bounce Mat

Details 

Speed bounce is a dynamic activity. The challenge can be simple so that it is simply a two footed jump from one side to the other. However, the challenge level can be increased by introducing timed challenges and precision challenges. How many bounces in 30 seconds? How many bounces landing with accuracy onto the foot prints in 30 seconds? And so on. Speed bounce uses calves, quads and hamstrings and engages the core muscles to carry out the activity. Speed bounce increases heart rate and is a good calorie burner.

Skipping Mat

Details 

Skipping is a full body workout which uses the abdominals to stabilise the body, legs for jumping, shoulders and arms for turning the rope. Regular skipping improves muscle tone in both the upper and lower body. Skipping helps balance and coordination and, if carried out at a moderate level increases the heart rate and burns calories.

Sit Ups Mat

Details 

Sit ups and crunches strengthen the rectus abdominal muscles which leads to better posture which in turn helps to protect the lower back. Sit ups will not, by themselves produce a six pack! To avoid neck strain, we suggest finger tips touching the temples, or forearms crossed with hands touching opposing shoulders rather than hands clasped behind the neck. It may be helpful for a class mate to anchor feet flat to the ground to make the pivot motion easier.

Rocket Jump Mat

Details 

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.

Balance Mat

Details 

The Balance mat focuses on fine motor skills and concentration. The exercise is 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.

Hula Hoop Mat

Details 

The benefits of the hoola hoop are sometimes overlooked, but carried out properly hoola hooping can provide a significant body work out. Core muscles are engaged to create the oscillating movement which also benefits the lower back, in turn increasing the range of spinal movement, its strength and flexibility. Glutes, quads and hamstrings are engaged in the action as the arms to a lesser degree. Finally, the brain is engaged as concentration is required to maintain rhythmic and constant movement of the hoop.

Press Ups Mat

Details 

Press ups are a tough exercise to carry out with good form but when done correctly, the muscles worked are many. The triceps (back of the arms) are the main arm muscles engaged, although deltoids (shoulders) get a work out too.

The pectoral (chest) muscles are targeted and the abdominals are engaged when press ups are carried out correctly, as the ‘abs’ 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.

Lunges Mat

Details 

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 during this exercise.

Target Mat (set of 4)

Details 

The target mats are part of the shuttle run collection however they can be used for other challenges too. Each mat isa 500mm x 500mm. They 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 6M (20') and so a target mat can be placed at 3M & 6M. 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.
