Physical exercise fitness tips for higher education institution students revealed.
University students should take at least 10,000 steps per day to keep fit
Chinese universities consider it as a physical education practical.
Physical exercise fitness tips for higher education institution students have been revealed. University students should take at least 10,000 steps a day, for five days of every workweek, or have more sports stadia to keep themselves fit even as the COVID-19 infection case still threatens schools reopening and smooth running of some schools globally.
The higher education institution students should have at least 40 minutes of exercise at a sports stadium once a week and those who don’t want to do the 10,000 steps can swap them for more sports stadium training.
Physical education and exercise fitness drive are more about putting emphasis on extracurricular activities in the hope that students can develop a life-long exercise habit.
In compliance with the participation of physical fitness drive, a university for foreign studies in China, Guangdong Foreign Studies University has introduced the physical exercise rule for its students both locals and foreigners using the WeChat Sports fitness tracker developed by Tencent.
The university authorities even warned that 10% would be deducted from the maximum physical exercise class grades if students fail to meet the physical fitness goal.
The new rules, which came into effect in the university at the start of last month, aim to improve the participation of students in physical exercise.
Many universities in China including Tsinghua University, Beijing Normal University, and Wuhan University which have been practicing the exercise since 2016 told students to record the amount of time they exercise for evaluation purposes.
These 10,000 steps of physical exercise rules were launched as part of a drive by the Chinese Ministry of Education to improve students’ participation in physical education.
Many Chinese students have complained that the 10,000 steps a day of physical exercise are difficult to achieve.
