Get Active as a Strong Competitor

Posted by Molly Brenner Nov 11, 2011 , ,

Katina and friends practice being strong competitors by competing in a relay race. They split into two groups. The goal is to move a pile of books from one side of the room and back as fast as they can. The first girl in line grabs a book and runs it to the other side of the room. She tags the next girl in line who brings another book to the other side of the room. Once all the books are on the other side, they start bringing them back, one by one.

Healthy Hint

Question: Do you think energy drinks and bars make you a stronger competitor and athlete? If so, how?

Answer: Most energy drinks and bars have a lot of sugar and caffeine. This gives you a quick shot of energy. Your body quickly burns through them and you often feel more tired than before. The best way to get a kick start on being a strong competitor is eating a good breakfast.
