Instructional Ideas

  • Pose the question, "Why are you sometimes sore after working out?" and allow pairs to discuss and then share with the class
  • Pause the video when lactic acid is discussed and allow pupils to tweak their answers
Classroom Considerations

  • Video seven in a series of 40
Pros

  • Other related video links are embedded 
  • Great analogies throughout video to help viewers understand these complex processes
Cons

  • The narrator moves quickly through these are complex processes; some pupils may be overwhelmed
