Fitness Challenge & Basketball Reward

Fitness Challenge & Basketball Reward
BasketballThere has been lots of physical activity at the Cabell County Alternative School the week of September 5 - 8, 2017.  Many of the students have been excited to exercise!  A fitness challenge was issued, and more than 20 students answered!  Students could choose from a variety of activities to earn points toward a reward basketball game on Friday, September 9th.  The students were required to accumulate at least 12 points from Tuesday through Thursday in order to play.  Some students were so excited, they earned all their points in one day!  It was wonderful to see students so willing to push their boundaries (and muscles) toward this goal.  Several students did more than 100 wall pushups and 60 traditional pushups.  One young lady performed a very challenging wall sit for 4 consecutive minutes.  One young man jumped out of his comfort zone and ran for 9 minutes.  There were successes all around!  This was such a great week for fitness at the Cabell County Alternative School.  For some students, this week opened their eyes to the abilities inside themselves.

A list of the activities completed this week follow:

1,216 ounces of water drunk
450 Jumping Jacks
400 Pushups
1650 Wall Pushups
25 Lunges

The basketball game was a huge success.  The students were enthusiastic and energetic throughout the game.
