Does your child participate in any weight bearing exercises? Although we often think strength training is something for adults or body builders, even our young students can benefit from the occasional bout with strength training for smarts. In the graphic below, we look into simple ways to incorporate strength training into a student’s life and thereby making them healthier. This is a great activity for the whole family. Don’t have weights? Use soup cans or water bottles. It is vitally important for parents to use their imagination, keep their students engaged and participate in family and team challenges. Try to beat your student in a push up contest or do wall squats while you recite poetry. The sky’s the limit for incorporating strength training into your day!

About Beyond Tutoring
Beyond Tutoring provides essential education services for students from 5th grade through college (even to graduate school), especially those with exceptionalities. We are different from "tutors" because we teach success, not just facts. We coach on how to learn, how to play the game, how to get into and succeed in college and in life. We invented the "life hack" for students. And it doesn't stop there, we support the parents, teachers and caretakers of our students as well. The end goal is for each student to be their own advocate. We specialize in Educational Mapping, Academic Advocacy and College Counseling. As you can see, we go way Beyond Tutoring! On our blog, we curate thoughtful and innovative articles sourced from teachers, advocates, educational mappers and designers of curricula, pedagogy and environment to create compelling content and concrete advice.
