During this mandatory state school closing, please try to keep your goal of living a healthy, active lifestyle. I am going to be posting some helpful hints, tips and videos on how to keep our physical and mental health in check during this time.

Please try to continue to work on the areas of our fitness testing that we have been working on in class. The tests include: the Mile Run, the 3 Minute Jump Rope, 1 minute Sit Up Test with arms across your chest and feet flat on the floor with knees bent, Push Up Test on your toes, Sit and Reach Flexibility Test, and the Shuttle Run.

Mile Run: There are many ways to work on your mile run, especially just outside in your neighborhood, at a track in your community, or on a treadmill. Here are some links that will help you with your endurance:



3 Minute Jump Rope Test: Below are some videos on learning how to jump rope and ways to be faster for the test.



1 Minute Sit Up Test: Below are some ways to improve your core strength for the sit up test.



Push Up Test: The push up test is performed on the toes, but if your upper body strength is weak, students can start on their knees. Please refer to links below for some helpful hints and pointers.
