The Physical Education Department here at Fernando R. Ledesma High School consists of five periods of weight tranining. Students are expected to participate each day, by stretching, following daily workout plans and conducting themselves appropriately and responsibly in a social setting. During the course of the school year the weight training porgram will examine circuit training, body shaping, strength training, nutrition/diet and cardiovascular fitness. Along with these training methods students will be able to work in small and individual group settings. Students will also participate in peer evaluations, chart individual progress and perform skills and written examinations at a high level. Students also have the opportunity to participate in quarterly weight training competitons against others of the same gender and weight class. Along with the required activities, students may also participate in a biannual intramural basketball league. If a student is able to meet all required days throughout the regular season and playoff rounds they will earn five elective credits in Physical Education.
