What do you get when you mix acorns and leaves with push-ups and squats? HD FitPro’s Fall Scavenger Hunt, of course! Super simple, lots of fun, and guaranteed to burn tons of calories. Erin and Carey won this Saturday’s Boot Camp game – though Kasey and Jesica do have every right to file an appeal since their list did have an extra item! (How’d that happen? LOL)
Here’s how to play:
Make a list of items you are able to find outside this time of year – or just use the list I made below. Write each item on an index card. The teams will pull a card, run to find the item, and bring it back to the central meeting point. Before they can grab their next card and run to grab that item, they have to do the exercise for that round. To determine how many reps of each exercise the team should do, they roll 2 dice and double the result. Each team rolls for itself, so one team might have to do 24 reps, and the other 4, but that’s just part of the fun!
Team 1 flips their first card. It says “Orange Leaf.” They run to find a leaf with orange coloring. (The whole leaf doesn’t have to be orange because, well, this is Florida and most leaves are green!) After finding the leaf, they run back to the meeting point and the game judge tells them “jumping jacks.” They roll a 2 and a 6 and quickly do 16 jumping jacks. They pull their next card. It says “pine cone.” After bringing back a pine cone the judge tells them “crunches.” They roll a 5 and a 1 and perform 12 crunches before pulling their third card. (And so on!)
Here’s your challenge:
You know the usual routine that your family has right after eating the big Thanksgiving feast? The one where all of the women are in the kitchen cleaning and the men are watching football? Well the dishes can wait and DVR will pause the great game, so break the routine and have some FUN! Play our exercise scavenger hunt and make some room for that pumpkin pie!
