Sep 14, 2020

Have fun improving your cardio endurance in the Cup Stack Challenge in today’s Fitness Play of the Day from the Ripken Playbook.

Cup Stack Challenge


  • Six cups or cones of equal size

Let's Begin

  • Mark a starting and finishing line about 10 feet apart. 
  • Line up your six cups behind your starting line. 
  • Pick up one cup at a time and run it across the finish line.
  • When you reach the finish line with your cup, place it down. Continue until all six cups are successfully stacked into a pyramid at the finish line.
  • Once all six cups are successfully stacked in the pyramid and you have crossed the starting line again, you have completed the challenge! 
  • Try it again and time yourself! What is your fastest time?
  • Challenge a friend or family member to race you. Set up two sets of cups and see who can complete the Cups Stack Challenge first!
