exercise for Kevin

October 26, 2007 at 8:08 am

Kevin’s mom, I teach grade school physical education. We always start our classes with a series of stretching exercises. The boys all tend to be rather tight in seated leg stretches, mostly because how they are built. Kevin may vary well need to stretch out the back of the legs but may need strength exercies to get all the major leg muscles in action.
Start with sitting on the floor, legs out straight, toes up, and reaching toward the toes. 3 times reaching forward toward the toes and 3 to 5 sets may be enough to get started.
I don’t know what level Kevin is at physically, but would be glad to suggest some simple strength training for his legs. Feel free to send a private message if you want.

I may not be able to do the exercises myself, but I have many years behind me in exercise training.
Slow but sure…

Hope it helps Kevin.
