In order to use our weight room students must have understanding of the contentsof this packet and sign off on the safety check off sheet as presented by the EWHS staff member who provided the instruction. This student will join a student list of those who have been given the proper safety instructions before they may use the weight room. This list shall be posted in weight room for each year.
1. Wear proper exercise attire and sturdy, supportive shoes when lifting. (Sandals, slippers, jeans, hats, etc ) are not allowed.
2. No food and beverages are allowed in the weight room!!!
13. Perform only exercises and techniques you have been taught in an EWHS weight training class or by your EWHS coach, i.e., EWHS basketball, football, soccer coach. Some lifts that are allowed at private clubs are not acceptable in a high school weight room (i.e., weight lifted over head outside of rack).
14. When injured, remember R.I.C.E. ( rest, ice, compression, and elevation). Ice used in conjunction with compression helps to contain swelling, reduce hemorrhaging and relieves pain. If you have a major concern about an injury or general physical condition, do not hesitate to see your physician.
