With a definite need for us to be more active in these solitary months of winter, I reached out for an alternative for us for Physical Education. Meet our new teacher ... Billy Blanks, Jr.
Three days a week I have been pulling up Billy Blanks, Jr., 10-12 minute hip hop exercise videos on Youtube and we have been getting our hip hop on! There are tons of routines and they are fun! Today we did a mix of 70's, 80's, and 90's dance moves. The videos really get our heart rates up, and we even sweat a little! And by the end the kids are saying, "I can't do it anymore! My legs!"
I didn't know if the kids would be able to handle the fast-paced routines (or me, for that matter), but they actually catch on pretty quick and are doing a great job keeping up!
If you are bored in your form of physical activity, I highly recommend this!
