P.E. Classes Warm-ups Part 3

Lets use 3 different examples of warm-ups. I am going to put a hard copy for you to look at or print and I will be adding a video for you to download as well. Keep in mind that on each of these you will need to use your judgement in regards to whether or not certain kids should do them. Injuries need to be addressed as do other various physical disabilities some of your students may be suffering from. These are not ballistic in nature but will provide a certain challenge to your students. Some will do better than others on various exercises. That is one of the things I like best about them is that it teaches kids to not criticize based on an inability to perform an exercise because it is quite possile that the individual trying to criticize will be unable to do the next without really struggling. 

I also recommend that you have your older students wear compression shorts or spandex. Some of these moves can leave you a little “exposed” and to avoid this unfortunate event, have them wear something to cover up the upper thigh and hips. I also will warn you that the kids will laugh at a few of these. It happens each time I start working with a new group. It takes a few times for them to adjust but eventually they just come to expect it as the normal way to warm-up

So to help and cover as many groups as I can lets focus on these three groups to warm-up.

1. Elementary Age – we will just give them a general preparation

2. Middle School – they are getting ready for a game of Kickball

3. High School – This group we will warm-up for a basketball game

I am going to do an individual post for each of these so that i can discuss each one without you needing to sift through hundreds of lines of text.

"My body has not reacted well with working a desk job.  I am only 25, but have been having a lot of pain that has built up over the past 6 months...The cubicle workouts have truly helped, I cant even begin to tell you...so much better! Thanks Scott, love the routines!" Brandon
