Muscles
• Contract (short)
• Extend (long)
Building Muscle
• Must break down
1st
• Rebuild
Break Down-Recover-Rebuild
• It is ok to STRUGGLE and Break Down.
• Don’t Quit. KEEP GOING !(ENDURE).
• Start STRONG...RECOVER Finish STRONG !
Flexibility
I can define flexibility and identify
activities that improve area flexibility
Flex
• Do Muscles Flex?
Joints flex.
Joints need fluid
• Like a bicycle chain needs oil, JOINTS need
fluid to stay healthy and provide the most
movement.

F-L-E-X-ibility
• What is flexibility?
• How is the term flexibility used in the
movement/exercise world?
• Are there any other uses for the term
flexibility besides people’s muscles?
• Give examples
1st-5
• All of our movements show flexibility.
• It is important to stretch but every movement
lengthens and shortens muscles.
• Yoga (slow) gets the joints “oiled” and ready
for the activities.
Most of us know
• Flexibility is the distance or range of motion
from a joint, which may be increased by
stretching.
Range of Motion
• Another way to say range of motion is to see
how far or how short (distance) our joints can
flex (short) and/or extend (long).
Range of motion
• Why is range of motion important to our
muscles?
• Muscles contract (shorten) and get strong.
• Muscles extend (lengthen) and relax through
movement.
Activity 2
• Today you will perform the activity stations.
• Were there any stations where you had
difficulty going through the full range?
• Evaluate yourself…
Flexibility Rubric
• After performing these exercises, evaluate
(rate or grade ) yourself using the following
scale.
• 1. stiff as a board (difficulty bending,
extending, holding, and completing)
• 2. Stretch Armstrong• flexible, (extend and contract as well as
hold…wide range of motion and completed)
