Today we will put all of the hard work we’ve spent together to the test – literally, as in today we begin the California Physical Fitness Test (PFT) aka the FITNESSGRAM.
Given that today is a shortened, testing, and block schedule day (56 min classes), we’ll try to knock out the ‘Abdominal Strength and Endurance’ event known as the “Curl Up”. Here is the movement standards video and the minimum goals you should have earn maximum credit for this event based on gender/age:
MALES (13 years old): 21 curl-ups
MALES (14 years old): 24 curl-ups
FEMALES (13 & 14 years old): 18 curl-ups
If time, we’ll try to knock out some of the quick n’ easy events such as height/weight measurement and flexibility testing. HOOAH!!
