If you need someone to play a game with, or spotting on lifting, please coordinate this ahead of time and explain in workout card. • You need to design your workouts based on what YOU like. Play to your strengths, but remember, you will still be tested with FitnessGram at the end of the qtr. Cardio Endurance, Muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and BMI
Be Creative • Use all the of the resources and examples that we have given you. If you liked something a lot, use it, but it needs to be justifiable. • Look around at the equipment and be creative!! Ask your teachers, we are here to help you! • Collaborate with other students for specific workouts. Example: Basketball Cardio w/ recorded heart rates and THRZ *Need to coordinate with another person to play 1 on 1, 3on 3 at most.
Safe Practices • If you question whether you should do it or not, DON’T. • If you need help, ASK • You must use spaces that are viewable by the teachers. If we can’t see you, you can’t go there!
