How could you perform a physical activity that would increase bone strength, as well as heart and other muscle endurance?
Stronger bones allow you to run, jump, work and play with less chance of injury. A stronger heart and more muscular endurance will allow you to be physically active for a much longer time! You improve bone strength and heart and muscle endurance when repeatedly hopping on one leg, jumping rope or jumping to rebound a basketball.
Crew Member Mission:
- perform jump training with a rope, both while stationary and moving, to increase bone strength and to improve heart and muscle endurance.
- record observations about improvements in stationary and moving jump training during this physical experience in their Mission Journal.
