Intensity- n. the extreme magnitude or amount of strength, force, energy, or feeling that something has.  The word, intensity, is commonly used by people to describe the degree to which something is challenging or difficult, just like the dictionary defines it as.  This is no different when it comes to describing a workout.  Many people run in the other direction when they hear the words, “vigorous exercise” or “intense workout”.  No pun intended.  However, in the fitness world, the word intensity is used for different purposes.  Further, the benefits of participating in regular vigorous exercise are becoming more and more apparent.

Not sure I agree with this totally, team sports are a massive part of what a lot of (not all) students want PE to be. The reason a lot of students elect to take PE is to help improve their abilitys in team sports

Don't agree but does bring up a possibility of a subject pathway with this particular focus.

Interesting take on PE and it's value. It almost totally overlooks the life skills and well being benefits of sport gained that are then applied to real life skills in and out of the sports domain.

Having aggressive parents on the sideline took the enjoyment out of the game and ended up making the players aggressive as well , it also made the game all about winning.
Todd Davies's comment, August 10, 2014 6:48 PM
When on the field the worst and most annoying thing is having parents on the side line telling you what to do. Its so bad at the hockey turfs that they have put up signs say these are kids. umpires are humans. coaches are volunteers. This is not the world cup. This shows what kids sport has come to.
Tyler Callum Owen's comment, August 17, 2014 9:03 PM
This article is completely true as parents are the main influences in our adolescent lives as they encourage and discourage all kinds of activities but when they are on the sideline the beast comes out, From personal experience I can remember my mum yelling and screaming at the referee and players, which is totally uncalled for and destroys the point of playing sport which is to have fun and be competitive compared to just being competitive.

As mentioned in a blog post earlier this year, this incredible app makes it possible to easily tag video and produce what is essentially a highlight montage. Essentially the user plays back recorded video and taps the screen when interesting events occur, tagging them with an associated keyword. On completion users can review the tagged events by keyword and export directly to the camera roll. Brilliant.

Extrinsic vs Intrinsic Motivation - The Sport In Mind – SPORT PSYCHOLOGY | Sport and Physical Education | Scoop.it

Extrinsic motivation is ‘external’: people – in this case athletes – are driven to succeed by factors from outside i.e. money, prizes, acclaim, status, praise. Intrinsic motivation comes from within i.e. an athlete driven by a need to succeed because they want to be the best and are not overly concerned by financial or ego boosts

Students need to run around and play to get rid of their energy. They cannot sit in a seat for hours at a time. Even just getting up to stretch every 15 minutes helps. However, we should try and get more physical activity in schools.
