Howard L. Goff Middle School students participated in the Weight Room unit in Physical Education classes taught by Kathleen Russell and Deanna Davis during the month of January. These students were met with the challenge of a Strength and Conditioning Leaderboard. To earn a spot on the leaderboard, students voluntarily participated in events such as the bench press, squat, deadlift, pull-ups, dips and 1 mile run.
For the lifting events, students calculated out their one rep max and earned a spot on the leaderboard based on the amount of weight lifted for one repetition. For the pull-ups and dips, students performed the exercise without rest and completed as many repetitions as they could. Lastly for the 1 mile run, the fastest times of the top three students made the board.
The top three students from each category were placed on the leaderboard which is hanging in the Goff Weight Room.
