Family Fitness Week is November 22-28!
Celebrate with some fitness activities you can do as a family! The NOVEMBER calendar celebrating Family Fitness Week is available along with 51 ideas for you to choose from. This is a great time to encourage each other to stay active, work on team building, and spend time together as a family.
Descriptions for Exercises
Side Lunges: Stand with your feet and knees together. Take a large step to the right with your right foot and lunge toward the floor. Your knee shouldn’t extent past your toes. Make sure your left leg stays relatively straight. Push off through your right foot to return to the starting positon. Alternate legs.
Sumo Squat: Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, and your toes slightly turned out. Push your hips back and squat down, keeping your chest up and knees out. Then stand up and return to the starting position.
Tricep Dips: Students can either use the edge of a chair, a bench, or raised box. Grip the edge with your legs extended out in front of you. Lower your body down toward the ground, with your back close to the edge, and bend your elbows until they are at about 90 degree angle. Then straighten the elbows and bring your body back to the starting position.
Leg Raises: Lie on your back with your legs straight and together. Keep your legs straight and lift them all the way up to the ceiling until your glutes come off the floor. Slowly lower your legs back down – you can also hold them just above the floor for an added challenge. Raise your legs back up and repeat.
