Physical Fitness

Remember the belt loops are for the scout doing their best to learn about the sport or academic activity, and by putting the new techniques to practice with fellow scouts, in their community, or working with an adult. 

Belt Loop

Complete these three requirements:

  1. Give a short report to your den or family on the dangers of drugs and alcohol.
  2. Practice finding your pulse and counting your heartbeats per minute. Determine your target heart rate.
  3. Practice five physical fitness skills regularly. Improve performance in each skill over a month. Skills could include pull-ups, curl-ups, the standing long jump, the 50-yard dash, and the softball throw.

  1. Make a diagram of the Food Guide Pyramid. List foods you ate in a week and show where they fit in the pyramid.
  2. Choose a form of exercise, bring your heart rate up to target, and keep it there for 15 minutes. Don't forget to warm up and cool down.
