Shadow running

PURPOSE: Warm-up (concentration and reaction) 

ORGANISATION: groups of two, three or four in a defined space.

RUNNING THE GAME: slowly run behind each other, crisscrossing through the entire space. Number 2 always follows every movement of number 1 as quickly as possible and keeps a distance of about 1 meter. Switch positions after a while.

VARIATIONS:

  • now the front runner tries to get rid of the back runner by sudden feints and/or tempo changes.
  • But now other movements are allowed as well: cross steps, jumping, lying down and getting up again etc.
  • No more groups: everyone runs freely. The players run towards each other, make a feint and:
    • then pass each other on the left.
    • pass each other on the right
    • turn around each other and run back
