About ME........

Hello Cougars!!!!!!!!! My name is Coach Skinner and I teach awesome, positive PE at TIS.  I am from the Cypress area where I attended Cy-Fair High School lettering in basketball and track.  I attended Stephen F. Austin State University where I received my degree in Kinesiology.  I have 2 daughters, Bailey and Reagan.  I LOVE sports and am a HUGE Houston Texans and ASTROS fan.  I'm excited to get to know you and can't wait to get you moving and active in PE.
********Remote Learning for PE********
Hey TIS Cougars!!!!  We sure do miss you!  It's important during this time that you stay active.  We are going to use this time to focus on health concepts and ways to stay active.  We want you to use what you have learned in class and implement it at home.  We ask that you do it at your own pace.  Our first session will have the information we taught you on how to get your working heart rate. (You may need to get your resting heart rate in the morning when you wake up) It will be important that you are able to do this, because that will help you gauge how hard the workout is for you each time. Just think, you know enough that you can teach your parents and siblings.  Each lesson will consist of the following:
 
    *  Health concept video
    *  Think about it questions
    *  Activity/movement video or physical activity instructions  
 
Enjoy, have fun and keep active!!!!
 
Office hours to answer questions via email:
Mon and Wed 9:00-9:30am - Coach Skinner (scheronskinner@tomballisd.net)
Tues and Thur 9:00-9:30am - Coach Taylor  (mistitaylor@tomballisd.net)

Muscular System

3/23/20

Physical Activity Challenge:

After watching the Muscular System Video posted below:
Answer the following:
 
How many muscles are in the human body?
What are the 3 types of muscles and their functions?
 
After answering the questions, we want to challenge you to do 2 rounds of the exercises below.
 
BEFORE you begin your warm ups, check your resting heart rate.  Using a watch with a second hand or a digital stop watch, count how many beats you feel for 15 seconds. (Remember...you get your heart rate best underneath your jaw area, on the side of your neck, hopefully you remember from class.  You can always look it up on the internet if you forgot) Repeat this calculation two or three times and find your average number. Multiply this number by 4 to achieve your RHR. For example, if you count 18 beats in 15 seconds, your RHR would be 72 BPM (18 x 4 = 72).
 
Now to get your body moving complete the following:
10 push ups from toes
20 push ups from knees
10 plank jacks - plank position jumping your feet in and out
20 jumping jacks
30 praying hand crunches - flat on your back, knees bent, hands straight above you pointing to the ceiling.  Keep your chin to the ceiling during this exercise.
 
AFTER your warm ups, check your working heart rate with the same formula as listed above.  

 

Great job!!!  We will have another activity challenge for you on Wednesday 3/25/20.
