Tape X across the shoulder blades Tape line down the middle of the back X MARKS THE SPOT
Abs in, up and down – not forward and back – Squat Tap, Step Touch, Step Curl, Double Step Touch Shoulders down – Jogging RA, Jogging Arm Pattern Square hips – Single Knee Lift Head still, body-line centered, chin in – Single Knee Lift POSTURE
GET GLUTES WORKING Stand on one leg Set up posture Squat – check alignment – weight in heels! Draw a circle around No moving of hips
DOWN AND UP Face front – Squat Tap, Step Touch, Step Curl, Gallop In groups of 4 – 2 people make bridge/1 person Step Touch, 1 person coach Gallop – face front Gallop – face partner
KNEE ALIGNMENT Low impact High impact Stationary
Correct hip and knee stability go hand in hand with core strength In BODYATTACK™ we spend a lot of time on one leg with multiple direction changes so alignment and stability are crucial! Reduce the risk of injury and pain in the lower extremity KNEE ALIGNMENT continued
TOE TAP DRILL Stand on one leg Draw the clock with free leg Tap the 12 o’clock, 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 4 o’clock, 5 o’clock, 6 o’clock, then back again Repeat on other side Partner checks knee alignment and pelvis stability
KNEE ALIGNMENT WHEN MOVING LOW IMPACT – 8 Knee Repeaters – Heel Digs, Side Taps, Back Taps
KNEE ALIGNMENT WHEN MOVING continued HIGH IMPACT – Flick Kicks Forward, Side Flicks, Back Kicks – Jumping Jacks – 2 Jumping Jacks & 2 Jumps Forward & Back – 4 Supermans – Ice Skaters – Power 3-Step Runs – Lunges
SUMMARY 1.Posture 2.Hip/Glute Alignment and Activation 3.Knee Alignment
ARM-LINES HIT POINTS Control small moves – Walk Forward & Back, Repeaters Fists to hips – Run Forward Double Punch – 4 Single Knee Lifts Punch Up Use your lats – Run On The Spot, Reach Up, Jumping Jacks Focus on the pull phase to be more dynamic – Knee Lifts Range – 45°/90° arms – Supermans
Transitions – 4 Supermans/4 Jumping Jacks – 4 Supermans/Shuffles Both sides even – Single Kicks ARM-LINES continued
LEGWORK Control small moves Range – 45°/90° angles and heights Transitions – finish last move Pointed toes Hamstring flexibility
RUNNING TECHNIQUE 3 MAIN POINTS: Body-line and Head-line Foot-line Arm-line
BODY-LINE and HEAD- LINE Stand tall but relax Keep head up – avoid looking down as hips tilt and shorten stride length Head back – arch the back
FOOT-LINE LANDING – walk in a circle – Heel-toe action when moving forward – Toes–heels when running on the spot – Always land lightly to absorb impact – Toes to heels when running backward HIPS, KNEES AND TOE ALIGNMENT – Toes pointing forwards – Knees in line with 2 nd /3 rd toes
ARM-LINE Use arms in a straight line – forward and back. Not across the body. Loose energy Use the arms to propel the body forward and assist the legs
Feet Back Run Lift chest Shoulders back and down Lengthen back of neck Stay tall but relaxed Heel to butt High Knee Run Land lightly Belly in Chest up Arms forward and back Hands to ribs Relaxed hands Hands lower than eye level RUNNING TECHNIQUE
RUNNING IN A CIRCLE Land lightly on heels to absorb impact Push off big toe to propel forward Stay tall but relaxed Arms forward and back Hands to ribs RUNNING TECHNIQUE continued
Hands relaxed Toes pointing forward – no rolling inward Knees in line with toes – back foot in line Big steps RUNNING TECHNIQUE continued
FUNCTIONAL HAMSTRING FLEXIBILITY Functional hamstring flexibility allows us to do BODYATTACK™ with correct alignment and posture Tight hamstrings = poor posture, increased wear and tear on spine, increased risk of injury
HAMSTRING FLEXIBILITY Important to maintain correct pelvis stability and spine alignment DRILL Back against wall 20x Kicks Hands behind back – keep pressure on
Scenario 1 You are a fit, energetic BODYATTACK™ instructor teaching a peak time class. People love your classes Every class is packed wall to wall with mainly regular participants Tonight – 3 new people to class and club Scenario 2 You are launching a new program in the club – BODYATTACK™. The club already has BODYPUMP™ and BODYBALANCE™ It’s the first time people will experience the BODYATTACK™ class
Scenario 3 6 months have passed. You are dealing with: 10 regular high-end people 10 ‘in and out’…and you are trying to retain them 7 are newcomers What are the winning strategies you’ll use and mistakes you’ll avoid so everyone comes back next week?
BODYATTACK™ EXPERIENCE Athletic, sports inspired, inclusive INSTRUCTOR Build class numbers Open your eyes! Adapt Everyone’s a WINNER!
IMPACT THE HIGHER THE FORCES – THE GREATER THE MUSCLE DEMAND Technique first – propulsions later Sell the benefits Cardiovascular system responds faster than musculoskeletal system
RANGE OF MOTION THE BIGGER THE MOVES – THE MORE ENERGY REQUIRED Reduce lower body moves Reduce arm-lines Reduce travel
DURATION THE LONGER YOU TRAIN – THE HARDER THE WORKOUT Start with half a class Start with 2 classes per week for 2 weeks Gradually add on tracks 6 to 8 weeks to do a full class
CLASS INTRODUCTIONS Groups of 3 - Shorter than 90 seconds A general welcome – reflecting the essence A brief description of the class and the benefits achievable for all Overview options to increase or decrease intensity based on their fitness level and objectives
TEACHING TO ALL LEVELS AT THE SAME TIME Groups of 4 – teacher, beginner, intermediate, super fit Teach Track 4 so all feel successful Instructors provide feedback
