I read story in the newspaper about an exercise we call "push-ups." The newspaper story says it's very healthy for us to do these simple exercises. Push-ups help us have strong muscles in our backs, arms and chests. Also, strong bones! Strong bones are very important for our health. So if we just walk, stretch and try some push-ups, we will take care of our stress. We will have better health and have better minds (for studying English, or other things!)
So here is my question for you today. How many push-ups can you do? You can try a push-up in class, or at home if you do not know now. Then take our poll. I'll tell you later how many I can do today. Let's see if we can do more push-ups on the last day of class. Let's get exercise and be healthy.
Watch this video from the newspaper story. These people can do great push-ups! Click back after you watch.
Next, this week please make a comment about health. Answer these questions:
- What do you usually do to be healthy?
- What should you do more often?
- What should you do less often?
