January’s BUILD A BETTER PUSH-UP – 30-Day Challenge PERFECT for Everyone!

Whether you’re a child or an adult, a fundamentally sound push-up can be difficult. After all, many of us simply haven’t developed the necessary muscle strength to successfully push our body weight from a down position up into a high plank. We need to realize that this is absolutely fine. We can’t run before we learn to walk. There are several simple exercises that I refer to as the evolution of the push-up, that can assist us in developing the necessary strength, allowing us to eventually perform a perfect traditional push-up.

The Build a Better Push-up 30-Day Challenge allows you to take ownership of your workout. You can select a level that fits your ability. Remember! A good fit doesn’t mean an easy fit. A good fit means while focusing on proper form, you are challenged to accomplish each repetition. You want the final few repetitions of each set to be a grind. This is where you develop the strength for your push-up to evolve.

Exercise has it’s own GIF

To conclude, the BUILD A BETTER PUSH-UP CHALLENGE serves as a tool for us to develop the necessary strength to complete one, or even several push-ups with precise form.

Certificate of Completion included.

FITNESS BLAST – It’s Time to Have a Blast Getting FIT!

It’s time to HAVE A BLAST GETTING FIT!

FITNESS BLAST is another cool way for your students to pace themselves running laps around the gym or outdoor space while performing 10 repetitions of one of four exercises. Each exercise uses a GIF for students to visually use as guidance. Fitness Blast includes 4 separate workouts. Here’s how it works:
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 1
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 2
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 3
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 4
  • REPEAT if time allows

Depending on the grade level, I will usually “play” Fitness Blast for 4-7 minutes. Prior to the workout, I remind the students to look at the GIFS in order to assist them in using proper pace and form.

AROUND the HORN DICE Fitness and AROUND the HORN MUSIC Fitness – 2 games, 2 times the fun!

I recently created over 30 exercise GIFS for our PE classes and online learners. I added many of those GIFS to two different fitness warm-ups called AROUND THE HORN DICE FITNESS and AROUND THE HORN MUSIC FITNESS! Each warm-up has 4 different versions. Each version includes 4 different exercises focusing on strength and endurance.

See the video below for an explanation of AROUND THE HORN DICE FITNESS!

In the nutshell, here’s how you play:

  1. Place four cones numbered 1-4 in each of the four corners
  2. Partners begin at one of the 4 corners
  3. Partner one rolls the dice
  4. Partners run around that number of corners (cones)
  5. Perform 10 repetitions of the exercise assigned to the corner
  6. Partner two rolls the dice
  7. Repeat steps 4 and 5
  8. Continue for 3-5 minutes
  9. How many times can partners run AROUND THE HORN?

The music version of the game, AROUND THE HORN MUSIC FITNESS, uses the same 4 game boards but instead of dice, the teacher controls the movement by playing and stopping music.

Here’s how to play:

  1. Place four cones numbered 1-4 in the 4 corners of the gym
  2. Students begin at one of the 4 corners
  3. Teacher plays the music
  4. While music is playing, students run around the 4 cones
  5. When the music stops, students go the closest corner
  6. Students perform the exercise assigned to the corner
  7. After 20-30 seconds, teacher plays the music again
  8. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for 3-5 minutes
  9. How many times can students run AROUND THE HORN?

Each game comes with 4 separate game boards for a total of 16 different GIFS!
