Gifted & Talented enjoy university sports workshops

Students from Bedales Gifted and Talented sports programme recently visited the University of Chichester to learn about anxiousness and circuit training. We began with a rock climbing activity in which we were taught why we get anxious and to what extent we can push ourselves. We then did some theory, writing down what we had learnt. After a refreshing lunch we got back to work and began with some circuit training. After a briefing on fitness, explaining that there are three main components of fitness: muscular strength, muscular endurance and cardiac training, we had a short spinning session, which included two of the fitness components we had talked about. We then finished our day with circuit training: completing different fitness exercises, including crunches, tricep dips, and planks etc. Overall it was an excellent day filled with new experiences and fun activities.
