    Week 9....

    Final assignment for distance learning.... all I need you to do is email me what your plans are for the summer including what you are going to do to continue to stay active and fit.


    Week 8.....


    Consult with the under armour workout page from last week, and pick 2 different home workouts and send them into me. Do not pick the same ones. Follow the same directions as week 7 but with 2 new videos. Use this time to make sure you have 8 assignments turned in. 


    Week 7


    Go to this link which will take you to the Under Armour At home workout page on youtube. Pick anyone of two of those workouts (there are 23 total) and email back to me the following:


    Which videos you did (specifically the name of the video, not just "the third one") the exercises that you had to do in the video and how long it took you to complete it. Use this week and go through the 7 weeks of work and if theres any work you haven't completed send it to me, all grades will be updated by the end of the week. Continue to take care of yourself and get all your work in for all your classes, be safe. 


    Week 6

    Complete the following at home work out, email back to me how many sets and reps you did of each exercise and what you used to do deadlifts and rows.




    Week 5 (Due May 1)

    Alright week 5 assignments the instructions are fairly simple. You have two things to do. Due back Friday. 

    1. You need to log 120 minutes of physical activity of your choice. Workouts, playing basketball, going on walks, whatever you choose to do. Record 120 minutes, and be specific on what you have done and email it to me back by Friday.

    2. THIS DOESNT COUNT IN THE 120 MINUTES!. There are 7 at home workouts on this link: 7 Best at home workouts---NERD Fitness  choose any that you want to do (DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY WORKOUT PLANS) pick 1 (the first one is beginner body weight, the last is PLP progression, and one of them is about training like Batman....) pick any one you want. Just tell me which one you did and the workouts that you had to do for it. So I dont want an email that says "I did train like batman" and thats it. I want you to list all the workouts that are in that specific one you picked. Again, this doesnt count for your 120 minutes. So make sure you get outside and do something!

    Be safe this week. Keep washing your hands, hopefully you all have been doing that....
