Troop 505 Personal Fitness Merit Badge (2 of 2) Workshop Sep 10

To Keep Myself Physically StrongDuring our next Troop Meeting at the American Legion Post 6 on September 10th from 7-8:30pm. We started working on our requirements for the BSA Fitness Merit Badge over two (2) sessions during our regular scheduled Troop meetings over the past two (2) months.

Please try your best to attend if you are interested in completing this Merit Badge. And please remember to purchase your Personal Fitness Merit Badge Series Pamphlet the next time you are at the Scout Store.

During this Troop meeting we plan to complete all the requirements not previously completed.

We will discuss plans to implement the following requirements over the next 12-weeks:

7. Outline a comprehensive 12-week physical fitness program using the results of your fitness tests. Be sure your program incorporates the endurance, intensity, and warm-up guidelines discussed in the Personal Fitness merit badge pamphlet. Before beginning your exercises, have the program approved by your counselor and parents.

8. Complete the physical fitness program you outlined in requirement 7. Complete the physical fitness program you outlined in requirement 7. Keep a log of your fitness program activity (how long you exercised; how far you ran, swam, or biked; how many exercise repetitions you completed; your exercise heart rate; etc.). Repeat the aerobic fitness, muscular strength, and flexibility tests every two weeks and record your results. After the 12th week, repeat the three tests, record your results, and show improvement in each one. For the body composition test, compare and analyze your preprogram and postprogram body composition measurements. Discuss the meaning and benefit of your experience, and describe your long-term plans regarding your personal fitness.
