Correct Sit Up Technique

How to do a successful push-up

All students complete push-ups, sit-ups and static stretches during each PE class. They continue to improve their technique and form through constant practice. We can encourage and help their progress by challenging them to do push-ups, sit-ups and static stretches on their days off from PE. Please use the videos and graphics on this page to help you guide your child in completing these exercises and stretches with proper form.  Remember, just a 5-10 minute stretching routine each day will significantly increase your child’s muscle flexibility. You can use all of these videos at home to assist your child and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
