Strength Training-A Healthy Core
Strength training training of all types is very important for all over health. Core strength training, however, provides a foundation for all other parts of the body. You might say...strength training starts with a health core. Including the abdominal exercises included here 3-4 times per week are a great start on this important foundation.
Besides creating a strong base, ab training also helps you with your balance and stability. This added stability can then help you with all sports activities. To be a better soccer player, a strong core is needed to use other body parts to propell that ball. In volleyball a strong core will help you increase the velocity that you strike the ball into your opponents court. In horseback riding a strong core will help you sit straight in your saddle and communicate clearly with your horse. All sports benefit from increased core strength.
For Independent Study students it makes even more sense to focus on core strength. You do not need a lot of equipment to do an ab workout. An Ab Ball would be nice, but a chair, couch or the floor will work as well. These workouts can be done in 10 minutes or less too. These make for a perfect brain break between Edgenuity lessons.
So take our challenge. This week work these into your routine at least 2 days per week. Add these to your PE log by Friday 2pm. Don't let any obstacles get in your way! Let's WOOP those away. Jump into the comments and tell us 1. The obstacle...2. Your plan for getting around that obstacle so that you can complete this challenge and get started on a healthier you!

My obstacle is that I sometimes I'd rather just watch TV or play with my cats instead of working out. Also, when friends ask to hang out, I'd rather do that too.
