Finish Well Homeschool Podcast, Podcast #178, 4 Kinds of Exercise Every Teen Needs, with Meredith Curtis on the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network

4 Kinds of Exercise Every Teen Needs

In “4 Kinds of Exercise Every Teen Needs,” Episode, #178, Meredith Curtis explains four ways our bodies need to workout to stay healthy and fit: aerobic, strength, balance, and stretching. After giving a wide variety of workout examples and sports that cover two or more kinds of exercise, she shares how teens can design their own workout schedule to fit their taste and style. She also encourages teens to find a lifetime sports and shares how that plays a role not only in lifetime health, but happiness as well. Teens can build healthy habits now that last a lifetime.

Show Notes

Teens, are you worried about spending too much time in front of a screen and not enough time working out? Or maybe you are a parent concerned about your teen’s health? Exercise is a big part of staying healthy from birth to old age.

First let’s talk about 4 kinds of exercise our bodies need.

4 Kinds of Exercise

  • Aerobic
  • Strength Training
  • Balance
  • Stretching

Many sports and workouts combine them all.

  • Ballet
  • Ice Skating
  • Water Aerobics
  • Swimming, Diving, + Stretching
  • Soccer + Stretching before and afer
  • English Country Dance + Stretching
  • Gymnastics

Aerobic

Works heart muscle. Makes heart pump harder and faster. Gives our lungs a workout too with a greater need for oxygen.

  • Running
  • Swimming
  • Dance (ballet, tap, jazz, Old English country, square, ballroom)
  • Skiing
  • Cycling
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Football
  • Soccer
  • Classes (kickboxing, Zumba, Jazzercise, boot camp)
  • Gymnastics

Strength Training

Muscle strength is the amount of work your muscles can do.

Muscle endurance is how long a group of muscles can work effectively.

You build muscle strength and endurance through strength training where you focus on a particular body part (e.g. situps) or in the process of aerobic workout (e.g. running builds leg muscles)

“he’s ripped!” – when you work out to build muscle mass, you actually damage/tear muscle and when the muscle repairs itself, it is bigger than before.

Low weight + Many reps = Toned muscles

Heavy weight + Fewer reps = Large muscles

Balance

Balance is the ability to maintain poise and physical equilibrium in various body positions. Gynastics, ballet, ice skating, soccer, and football all required balance.

Balance easy – stand on 1 leg; then the other and other easy exercises

Stretching

When you stretch a body part you lengthen (stretch) the muscles and associated soft tissues.

Benefits

  • Improves flexibility
  • Maintains mobility
  • Increases range of motion
  • Increases blood flow
  • Prevents injury
  • Improves posture
  • Improves sleep
  • Eases anxiety
  • Releases tension from muscles, joints, ligaments (connect bone to bone), and tendons (connect muscle to bone)

Most importantly, stretching before and after working out, warms the muscles and keeps them from tightening up, preventing injury of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Teaching Health to Teens

Physical Anatomy (How the body works & what the body needs)

Personal Responsibility (what will they do to take care of their bodies?)

I have written my own high school health course. I also teach health at True North Homeschool Academy.

Healthy Living for Christian Teens by Meredith Curtis

Teens can figure out what sports they like to play already and/or would enjoy adding to their life

  • Large group (basketball, football, soccer) or single (running, ice skating, horseback riding) or small number (tennis)
  • Making a plan that includes all 4

Benefits of at least exposure to serious team sports

Choose a lifetime sport

  • Cole-basketball
  • Aunt Joan – tennis

Truth Your Family Needs to Hold On To in 2023

In “Truth Your Family Needs to Know in 2023,” Episode, #177, Meredith Curtis combats the most popular lies of the age with Truth from God’s Word. In a world of lies, we need to teach what is TRUE, not tickle people’s itching ears. Now more than ever, we need to take a stand for biblical reality especially in our hearts and homes.

Show Notes

Have you heard what is being said on social media, in movies, on TV, by politicians, by influencers, and in some churches?

Is Hard Work Dangerous?

“We weren’t made to work hard” story

“All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty” (Proverbs 14:23 NIV)

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord [x]rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve. For he who does wrong will receive the consequences of the wrong which he has done, and that without partiality” (Colossians 3:23-25)

Biblical work week

Follow Your Heart?

Every secular movie and some Christian ones

The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9 NASB1995)

How Many Sexes?

Man or woman or something else? Can you define a man or a woman?

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Genesis 1: 26-28 NIV)

What is God’s View of Sex?

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral” (Hebrews 13:4 NIV)

Is there a Right & Wrong?

Is something right for you but not for me?

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs 14:12)

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (II Timothy 3:16)

Is the Battle Between Brown & White?

We talk so much about race in a way that divides. Is that what the Bible teaches?

We are all descendants of Adam and Noah. One race the human race; yet many nations.

Is Western Culture Worth Saving?

Western culture is a combination of Jewish, Christian & Pagan.

Every tribe and tongue around the throne. (Revelation 7:9)

Does God Even Care about Sin?

The sin of every man, woman, and child will be punished.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles“ (Romans 1:18-23)

Our sin will be punished in hell or on the cross where Jesus died.

Gospel:

If we are truly born again – we will live a holy life tho we will sometimes sin (see I John 1)

How Can I Swim Against the Evil Tide of Our Culture?

Abide / Surrender (John 15)

Hide the Word (Psalm 119:8-11)

Worship & Prayer (adoration, confession, thanksgiving, supplication-ACTS)

Live a holy life (I Thessalonians 4)

Share the Gospel!!!!!!!!!

Speak Out!

Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. If you say, ‘But we knew nothing about this,’ does not He who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will He not repay each person according to what He has done? (Proverbs 24:11-12)

Our Christmas Morning Traditions

In “Our Christmas Morning Traditions,” Episode, #176, Meredith Curtis shares her Christmas morning traditions, established in 1986 and continued to this day. Starting with special Christmas devotions and a homemade cinnamon roll “birthday cake” and ending with presents, these morning traditions have helped us to celebrate joyfully while keeping our focus on Jesus, the One we celebrate. The Curtis Christmas morning traditions have impacted relatives and friends who have occasionally visited our family for the holidays. Precious to this day, Meredith encourages listeners to create their own Christmas morning traditions that meet the needs and desires of your own family. Merry Christmas!

The Quiet Fight Between Women – HIRL Episode 56

quiet fight between women (1200 × 628 px)There is a quiet fight going on under the surface in homeschooling for a long time.

“Let’s face it. The quiet fight between women in homeschooling often comes down to pride.” – Angie Tolpin

We dive back into familiar waters on this episode and tackle the issue of competition and pride that we see generally among women in the church, but specifically within the walls of homeschooling.

“You know there are greater possibilities of friendship and Christian fellowship in your life. And yet — despite your best intentions — there is something in the way holding you back from your spiritual growth with your sisters in Christ. But what is it? A silence. A distance with no name. A weapon of the enemy fashioned to drive us apart and stop us from creating the fellowship we need for our growth in Christ.  Something so subtle you might never understand it alone, much less be able to overcome it.” –The Quiet Fight Between Women

Fletch and Kendra sit down with author Angie Tolpin and have an honest discussion about why women have difficulty connecting or feel as if there is an undercurrent of comparison and competition running through our relationships. Join them on this episode as they talk again about how Jesus changes our communication and frees us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with each other as we seek to bring glory to God.
