1. Physical Education is "education through the physical".

It aims to develop students’ physical
competence and knowledge of movement and safety, and their ability to use these to perform in
a wide range of activities associated with the development of an active and healthy lifestyle. It
also develops students’ confidence and generic skills, especially those of collaboration,
communication, creativity, critical thinking and aesthetic appreciation. These, together with the
nurturing of positive values and attitudes in PE, provide a good foundation for students’ lifelong
and life-wide learning.

body at a greater intensity than your usual level of daily activity. Exercise raises your heart rate and works
your muscles and is most commonly undertaken to achieve the aim of physical fitness.
5. Strength
Strength can be gained through two types of training, resistance and weight. Weight training is a
form of training where the force of gravity in the form of dumbbells and weighted bars is used to
oppose the force generated by the muscle via eccentric and concentric contraction. In resistance
training, hydraulic and elastic tension is used to provide the actual resistance.
Endurance
Endurance training consists of performing low- to medium-intensity exercise for an extended
period of time. This type of training can be done by running or jogging, and using equipment like
the stair stepper or elliptical machine. Endurance training is different from other forms of
physical stress, where fatigue of the muscles and cardiovascular system would cause one to stop
a particular exercise. In endurance training, these conditions would not cause the physical output
or effort to end.
Flexibility
Flexibility is the range of movement in a joint or series of joints and muscles that is attainable
through your own efforts, the help of a partner, or a piece of equipment. There are many
advantages to being physically flexible. Flexibility improves general health, reduces the chances
of injury, and improves your physical performance.
