Learn How to Take Your Heart Rate
Let’s learn how to measure your HEART RATE.
A person’s heart rate (pulse), is the number of times the heart beats per minute. The heart is a special muscle because of what it does for us. The heart sends blood throughout our body. That blood provides our body with important oxygen and nutrients… it also carries away waste.
To find your pulse in your neck, place two fingers on your Adam’s apple in your throat (that’s the part that sticks out and moves when you swallow). Gently feel to the side of it, and you will find your pulse.
Count the number of beats (pulses) for 15 seconds.. Take that number and multiply it by 4 to find your heartrate in beats per minute. For example, if you count 25 beats (25 x 4 = 100 beats per minute.)
Take your pulse before you start (best if done first thing in the morning)- this is your ‘resting heart rate’. Record your heart rate again after exercise and note the difference.
Did you Know? A child’s heart typically beats faster than an adult’s.

CrossFit Kids Game
Sponge Bucket Relay
Divide kids into two teams (adults can play, too!)
Place cones 50 feet apart.
At the starting cone, place two buckets filled with water, each with a sponge, and place two empty buckets at the other side.
On trainer “3-2-1 GO” the first child in line dunks the sponge into the water and then runs the sponge to the other side, squeezes water out of the sponge into the empty bucket and runs back to the starting line.
While the teammates are waiting, they must be doing jumping jacks or squats. The team with the most water in their bucket when time is called wins.

How many successful skips can you do in :45 seconds?
