We work hard to exercise our bones, muscles, heart, and lungs. But good athletes also exercise their brains! Training the nervous system to be in control of the body is just as important.
Good ways to work footwork, balance and agility are ladders, hurdles and balance beams. We used combinations of those in a relay in PE this week. We didn’t just go forward, either. We stressed the nervous system by going sideways, on one foot, and even backwards.
