Where was this video when Judge David Johnson was in elementary school? Then maybe he'd have been picked for the dodge ball team instead of having to hang out with the losers and trade Garbage Pail Kids.
You heard me. MOVE!!!
Duane Carlisle's training resume, featured prominently on the flipside of the disc case, is quite impressive: San Francisco 49ers assistant strength and conditioning coach, president and founder of Lightning Fast Training Systems, former speed consultant for the Philadelphia Eagles, and former conditioning coach for the New Jersey Pride, Philadelphia Charge, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and Penn State. Not too shabby. Although it's hard for me visualize a frustrated parent, looking at his fat and lazy kid pounding away on his PS2, and thinking "If only I had a DVD with someone who had loads of training experience that little Jeffrey would listen to!"
Get Up and Move is an installment in Carlisle's "Home Fitness for Kids" series, and features three 10-minute workouts geared toward children. The exercises are designed to be done indoors with a minimum of props and are all relatively low impact. In fact, as Carlisle emphasizes, the thrust is to basically get kids off the couch and injecting a smidgen of cardiovascular activity into their video game-soaked lives.
Here's how the workouts shake down:
• "Get Up and Move"
• "Jump Jump Jump"
• "The Need for Speed"
Each workout has a timer at the bottom, clearly designating how much more punishment the kid has to endure before taking a break. Actually, all the exercises are easy to do, and Carlisle uses his two young boys as support to show how the drills are done. There's lots of hopping and stretching and balancing on one leg and running in place and twirling and so on and so forth. I don't know if it's enough to get your blob of a kid's cholesterol down significantly, but it shouldn't be that steep a challenge and looks kind of fun.
