Simple home based 30 second challenges to improve your hand / eye co-ordination, agility, balance, co-ordination and speed.
Each Friday we will be launching a new weekly challenge for you to try at home. Each one takes 30 seconds and requires simple equipment you should be able to find around the house, shed or garage. As well as having a go and trying to improve your own score each time, you can challenge your friends, family, the LRS staff and even our GO GOLD funded athletes!
Take a look at the demonstration videos, have a go and then upload your own videos of you performing the challenges via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and submit your results via our online form below.
Here's our next HiFIVE Challenge!
If you have tried our #BatAndBall & #BallAndWall challenges, how about one that combines both of them?
