Useful physical activity

For 10 years, scientists observed the work of thousands of Americans. The journal JAMA Internal Medicine published the results of a study that looked at all aspects of exercise, not just how much exercise a person did. Adults should do either 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity or 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week. This is what doctors advise.
Pairs of tennis, brisk walking, or cycling at a slow speed are all examples of moderate activity. Experts say that during heavy activities such as running, swimming or playing football. Some study participants achieved the recommended amount of exercise per week, while others achieved this amount in one to two weeks of training.
Getting enough activity during the week or on weekends can reduce the risk of death. Doctors also say that people should do some physical activity every day, especially strength training, and try not to sit for long periods of time. For example, yoga, pilates, and gardening or gardening all require intense exercise.
Recommended levels can also be achieved with shorter and more intense sessions.

Mini-volleyball - a short story about the invention.

The history of mini-volleyball is closely related to volleyball. It may have appeared quite spontaneously, but we can only guess where and when it actually first appeared. Mini-volleyball appeared in the early sixties of the 20th century. The birthplace of mini-volleyball is the Japanese town of Taiki, where for the first time mini-volleyball was practiced as an independent sport. At the same time, Hiroshi Toyoda is considered the father of mini volleyball. The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) recognized mini-volleyball in 1971, when a sub-committee on mini-volleyball was created within the FIVB Coaching Committee. In 1972, uniform rules of the game were approved, and in 1975, the first mini volleyball conference among 19 participating countries was held in Sweden.
Mini-volleyball is a game for children from 9 to 12 years old. It is often included in the school curriculum of many countries. There are two levels: mini-4 and mini-3. Both teams fighting for victory have 3 or 4 players plus 2 more substitutes. Both boys and girls can participate in the game at the same time. The game lasts up to 15 points. To win a match, you need to win 2 games, and the mini volleyball game often takes time.

Pleasant memories of performances at competitions.

During distance education, watching memories of students' performances evokes pleasant memories.
It is very nice to remember the sparkle in the eyes of our students during classes, and especially during performances at competitions, when they realized that their work on themselves causes applause from the audience.
We hope that our girls in the classroom not only learned to correctly perform exercises that can be used in everyday life, but also gained confidence.
