DIFFERENT TYPES OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
There are 4 different types of exercise. Each type helps your body in different ways.
Ms. Smith how many different types of physical activity should students practice?
Aerobic activity gets your heart pumping and your lungs working harder. It also may make you sweat
Ohh you mean like fast walking, hiking, jogging, running, tennis, hockey, or soccer.
Muscle strengthening gives you greater power. Do muscle-strengthening activities at least three times a week
Oh I know what you mean!! Push-ups, pull-ups, or sit-ups, or working out with exercise weights or resistance bands.
Gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, or tennis. These are some of my favorites Ms. Smith.
Bone strengthening exercise helps your bones grow and keeps them strong.
Stretches make your muscles more flexible.They can help you can reach and bend and turn better. Being flexible can help you avoid getting hurt.
You can do special stretching exercises like toe touches or side stretches. I love practicing yoga, martial arts, dance, gymnastics.
There are all sorts of ways you can get active. You can pick aerobics, muscle or bone strengthening exercises, or stretching.
Why not start out by just dancing to some music? The first step is to just start moving.
