In class today we were given jump ropes to start the day off. After just the warm up I was tired, it really is a good way to get the blood pumping and your heart rate up. When jump roping you are focusing on cardiovascular endurance and endurance. We were then told to jump rope while moving and then switch it up and do it a different way that doesn't feel normal to you. After a while we then go into groups and were told to come up with a routine for jumping rope that was symmetrical and went along with the music that was playing in the background. My group tried our best and was able to get one full completion of what he had planned in the one minute that we were being video taped. It was fun, tiring, frustrating and educational all at the same time. I now know what it is like for the student that I will be teaching in the future if they have trouble with a certain skill or activity.
