Students Develop Strong Goals in Strength Training

Students in Ms. Carlson and Mr. Squeglia's Strength Training classes have been working hard! Each student is challenged with new exercises and circuits that develop muscular fitness and help increase strength and power. The bench press and back squat are two exercises in which students complete a one-repetition max challenge. This is a great way to track progress as the students finish out the second nine-weeks and are working hard at gaining strength! Learning the proper form and technique to these exercises is incredibly important! Student have created their own exercise programs to meet each individual's goals and focus on the areas they find of most interest. In class, students motivate one another to reach new goals and push each other to new limits. In the max opportunity of the year two students had outstanding results: Brooklyn Williams and Landon Kowalski. Brooklyn recorded a Max Bench score of 125 lbs and a Max Squat score of 215 lbs. Landon recorded a Max Bench score of 165 lbs and a Max Squat of 305 lbs.
