Taking Healthy Competition To A New Level
Competition doesn’t always mean trying to beat another person in a game. Competition is much bigger. You can compete against yourself. How many front kicks can you do in 60 seconds? If you practiced, would you be able to increase that number? Of course you would! Competing against yourself challenges you to work harder to do better, which helps you compete against other students.
Try any or all of these suggestions to help you take healthy competition to a new level:
- See how many times you can punch a punching bag in 30 seconds. Practice for a few days and do it again trying to break your last record.
- Run a mile. Track your time then try to beat it the next day.
- Challenge a friend in class to see who can increase their flexibility the most over the course of a month.
- See how many push-ups you can do, then try again beating that number.
- Challenge a friend in class to see who can do the most kicks in 30 seconds.
