Both testing assessments were performed at the same location, at the same distance, with the same directions and insructions.
The second trial was a bit cooler and slightly windy due to the outside weather.
In class, gradual increases in distance will be provided in order to build up our student's capacity to lengthen their cardiovascular abilities.
-Incorporate activities which use the aerobic system
-Utilize Fitnessgram testing periodically and make changes to keep the students intrigued
-Keep the students informed. Provide them with their results so they can track their progress, seeing their improvement over the year can be very important to the students.
-Constantly raise the bar, it is important to provide the students with a challenge they can overcome. This gives them something to strive for.
-Healthy Choice of the Day- Review the lunches in the school and explain to the class what is the best choice and why.
Improve/Maintain Out of Class
Out of class, daily workouts should also take place to help increase cardiovascular endurance and abilities. Simple jogs, core workouts, plyometrics, and cardiovascular workouts all contribute to ones success in becoming more "heart healthy."
-Provide the class with some activities they can do outside of school.
-Take a jog or a walk with a relative or friend. Explain to them that jogging around the block or around town is a great way to workout and will positively affect their mile.
-Nutrition and Rest. Cover the importance of nutrition and rest whenever possible. Nutrition is very important to achieve maximal results. Also, sleeping is very important. When you sleep your body recharges and takes all the necessary measures it needs so it can properly function the next day. If you deprive your body of sleep, many problems can occur.
-Stay hydrated. It is very important to make sure you drink enough water so your body can run functionally.
