Hey All! Not sure if I’m the only one this happens to, but when I copy a Session or Week, my supersets almost always get scrambled. The same movements are still grouped together, but they are in a different order than the original session.Any suggestions, or remedies?Thanks in advance!
Hello, I see that the video’s name was updated to Hip-Centric Static Stretch Routine from Static Stretch: Hip Routine. I checked on You tube and when I copy the Static hip routine the Hip centric video comes up. They are both the same video but different names. I have the Static hip routine in a workout and the video wont upload for my students. I went in to resouces tab and the new hip centric static routine is not there. Thank you David Stoddard

Hi fellow P.E. teachers! After incorporating PLT4M into my classes for the last 3 years, I’ve fine tuned the way I introduce PLT4M to my students. It can be challenging to learn a new online tool yourself, while simultaneously teaching your students how to use it! Below I’m sharing my latest approach for introducing PLT4M into my classes: Introductions and expectations The first day of school can be exciting and nerve wracking, and it is my job to make sure that the students feel comfortable right off the bat. I start by introducing myself, including: My background (something personal about me) Why I’m here Why I teach Next, I’m going to explain the goal of the class. I teach 3 different courses: Strength & Conditioning, Foundations of Weight Training, and Women’s Fitness. Each course has different goals and objectives, so I like to make it very clear what they signed up for, so that they understand what that class is all about, and what they can expect to gain from it.
Providing Structure AND Choice in PE My PE classes consist of students in grades 9-12, of all different backgrounds. In classes with up to 60 students, I could encounter the following: Students ranging from grades 9-12 Non-athletes Athletes who already worked out that morning Athletes who haven't worked out Experienced lifters Students who've never entered a weight room I knew I had to appeal to a wide variety of students in order to get them to buy into my PE class, but I still wanted to provide some structure so they knew what to expect in my class that day. I landed on the following schedule: Monday - Mobility DayChoices: Stretching/Flexibility OR Yoga Tues/Thursday - Strength & Conditioning Choices: Bodyweight Fitness OR Weight Lifting Wednesday - Cardio Day Choices: Cardio Machines or PLT4M's Dance Fitness Friday - Game Day When students show up for class each day, they have two options. For example, on Tuesdays when students arrive, about half of them will head to the weig

Good afternoon, is there any way you can create a lock mode on your site so when a student enters he or she can not leave the site without logging out. Have a difficult time monitoring the students online activity when they are supposed to be on their plt4m app. Thank you for your time. Brian Rill

Worksets are a tool found in our weight training programs, used to assess athletes maxes and automatically adjust them up or down in increments of 5 LBs, based on their performance.

I downloaded my reports at the end of last semester and received the email that they were ready. However, when I click on the link to download the reports, I cannot get them to download. I have tried to download them on several different devices and I still cannot get the file downloaded. Any advice? Thanks
