Physical Education Philosophy

Physical Education Philosophy - Research states that there is way too little strenuous exercise in today's P.E.  Due to this trend, young athletes are becoming injured more at an earlier age because their muscles are not being strengthened enough in their younger years of physical education.  Students/Athletes are more prone to getting hurt when they are out of shape and/or their muscles are lacking an appropriate level of strength for activities.  Doing regular strength training exercises and conditioning work creates stronger and more efficient muscles.  Therefore, I really believe in incorporating the basics.  Students as early as Kindergarten are required to start doing modified and unmodified push-ups and sit-ups as well as working toward doing 10 minutes of continuous running.  It is my goal that all students participate in as much moderate to vigorous exercise as possible.  They need to build muscles, sweat, and exercise to the point of being out of breath at least once in every Physical Education class.  The more students work to the point of their body being physically uncomfortable the stronger and more in shape they will become.
