  • Running Improvements

    During last week's classes and this week's classes we are seeing how much the students have improved their running times. If the student was unable to run the first time for a score, they will run this time and then be able to test again in a couple of weeks. Same goes with students who couldn't run the 2nd time.

  • Physical Fitness Testing

    Posted by Britany Cheek on 11/22/2013 8:35:00 AM
    We started doing our Physical Fitness Testing last week. The test consists of sit and reach, push-ups, sit-ups, shuttle run, and either 1/4, 1/2 or 1 mile (depending on grade).
    We still have to finish up a couple of classes. We are doing this testing now as a Pre-Test and then testing again in April to see how much they have improved!

    I am really impressed how hard the students are working at this. They are doing a great job. I see it in a lot of the students faces how impressed they are with the outcomes they are having in the tests. I love seeing how happy they get when they accomplish something!

    After Thanksgiving break, we will be playing more fun games and learning about our bodies and how/why they respond to exercise!

  • Health-Related Fitness

    Posted by Britany Cheek on 10/9/2013 6:20:51 PM
    Health-related fitness consists of 5 components: Cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and body composition.

    We try to do an activity each day that represents each component. These components help keep our bodies healthy. Below is a list of activities that can be done in each area.

    CVE- running, fast pace walking, intervals, and aerobics. Anything that gets your heart rate up!
    Flexibility- stretching, yoga, and dancing.
    Muscular strength- push-ups, weight lifting, crab and bear walk, and jumping. Anything that strengthens your muscles.
    Muscular endurance- high set reps of lifting and jump ropes. Anything that keeps your muscles working for a long period of time.
    Body composition- eating right, working out, and staying healthy.

    Next week I will post about activities that are part of Skill-Related Fitness.
