The Floor is Lava

By Nike Training

It's about to get hot. Playing this classic game with your kids will get the entire family active.

It's a game as old as time (probably). And it's a great way to get the whole family moving. We're talking about a floor made of lava—which means it's time to start jumping, wiggling and bouncing to stay off the ground and out of trouble.

We all know that kids love to play games. But we have it on good authority that us adults love them, too. So for this workout, let's get everyone involved. Spin a tale to the fam about how the floor is really lava. You can start the workout as normal as you all lunge and squat on the "regular floor". However, as soon as one of you calls out "the floor is lava!", everyone must stop and jump onto the sofa (or anything else nearby) to keep their feet off the fiery-hot ground.

As the "lava" dissipates, you can tell everyone to return to the floor for the caterpillars and star jumps. But not for long! At any time, the floor can transition again (as soon as someone yells it out). Make sure the family is always on guard and ready to make the leap.
