What’s up Phys Ed Family!
Today I wanted to highlight one of my membership resources and a great little tool that I’ve been using with my students.
My Printable Exercise Posters Pack!
A few years ago I got sick of never having any exercise posters with actual kids on them, it seemed like anything I could find was designed for adults.
- Adolescent aged examples
- Specific exercises that I teach my students (curl-ups, sit and reach, shoulder tap pushups)
- The main component of fitness that was targeted displayed on the sign
Sure, I could’ve just made due with what I had, but I’m a bit of a control freak and I really wanted to create something that fit perfectly with my PE program and the exercises that I was in the habit of teaching students.
I thought about trying to draw/design them myself… but while I’m awesome behind a computer or a camera, I don’t have much talent when it comes to drawing/illustration.
So, to keep the posters from looking like horrible stick figure drawings, I hired a designer and we brainstormed the girl and boy that would be the models along with the top 25 exercises that I wanted to have drawn.
You can see an example of how they turned out below:
After I got the final result, I was really happy with the way the designs turned out.
Using the illustrations, I created 25 one page exercise posters and also created 10 one page workouts AMRAP style (As Many Rounds As Possible within a time limit).
Once I introduce my students to the 25 exercises, I let them begin to do the One Page Workouts.
How I Set Up the Workout
Normally, I have 2-3 signs at each of the 6 stations around the room and we rotate through a Interval Workout of 30 seconds on – 15 seconds off. So students do the exercise for 30 seconds then when the timer buzzes they rotate to the next station and have 15 seconds to rotate and rest.
I always have 2-3 exercise options at each station so students can switch if they get too tired (burpees for 30 seconds is pretty tough).
After they learn all of the exercises, I switch it up by allowing them to choose from the One Page Workouts and try to complete as many rounds as they can in a 3-5 minute time limit.
You can also project them on a screen if you have one available in your teaching space.
