Best exercises for school students

Everyone knows that exercise is very important for proper physical, mental and social development of an individual. Students should do regular physical exercise as they are in the growing stage and exercise helps to build and shape a perfect height, weight and full development of the body. Students should do physical exercise at least 3-4 times in a week. Here, we are going to talk about the best 5 exercise for teenage students. And our tutors from our tuition agency have given some inputs.

Push Ups :
Our tutor mentioned push-ups as the number 1 exercise for everyone. Push-ups are the number 1 bodyweight exercise where you lift your own body weight using your arms. This exercise primarily builds a stronger chest and also builds triceps, back, shoulder etc. We can say it builds all the muscles of our body.

Running outside in nature can be full of fun. Running helps to build stronger legs. It maintains body weight and increases testosterone hormone. Likewise, it helps to maintain blood pressure and maintains a healthy and strong heart. Students can go for running in the morning or in the evening for at least 15 minutes.

Swimming is considered as the best fat cutter exercise. Swimming burns lot of calories. Our Science Tutor says that we can burn around 500 calories in an hour of a normal swim. Swimming helps us to lose unnecessary weight and help us build fit and stronger muscles.

Children love cycling because they feel independent and freedom in exploring the city. Cycling involves a fast movement of the leg muscles which increases the heart rate and this helps to increase the stamina of the children. A recent study tells that kids who do cycling are found more energetic and outstanding than those who do other exercises like swimming and running. It helps to boost testosterone hormone to the maximum.

Dancing is considered as one of the kids favourite exercise. According to Pro Dance Center, regular dance practice can increase your child's flexibility, the range of motion, physical strength and stamina. So if you are thinking of hiring a dance tutor, you can hire them from House Tutor, Singapore.

School Life Vs College Life

School life and college life both are very wonderful and unforgettable part of our life. There is still a debate between school life is better vs college life is better. To find out which one is better, our tutors form tuition agency, conducted a research with 400 people. Among those people, 376 people reported as school life was the best life and most memorable life. Whereas rest concluded as college life was the most memorable and interesting life. So finally, we can conclude that school life is definitely most interesting and memorable life. We can distinguish life in school with college life.

Differences between school life & college life
  1.  School life is more disciplined than college life.
  2. There are lots of rules in school life like the rule of attending school daily, attending school on time, keeping nails and hair short, wearing clean ironed uniform, and lots more but in college life, there are fewer rules followed by few students.
  3. Students are forced to come in complete school uniform in school whereas you are free to wear any uniform in college.
  4. In school life, students have to undergo lots of exams taken by tutors like a weekly exam, quarterly exam, the first terminal, second terminal and much more and students have to attend those exams compulsorily. In college, there is no pressure as much as school to attend internal exam
  5. We have less freedom and have limited pocket-money during school life while there are more freedom and less pocket-money problem in college life.
  6. In school, we have to complete homework daily as well as maintain notes of every subject. In college, the assignments are flexible and need to submit weekly or monthly.
  7. In school, we know names of the most student in the classroom but in college life, we hardly know names of half students in the classroom.
Although there are differences in school and college life, both have given us lots of memories that can not be forgotten. Those memories will always stay in our heart and can wet our eyes whenever we think of our friends. You are the luckiest one if your best friend in school days is still your best friend. If you are still a student, enjoy it, live it, create lots of memories because once your student life is over, it won’t come back.
