Meet Luke V. Carone Learning Student of the Week!

Luke is taking strength training and has done very well improving his strength and endurance throughout the course. He has appreciated this course encouraging him to stay active during the lockdown in the UK, where he is at, schools have remained closed this year.

What do you like most about your Carone Learning course? It helps me to keep active during the lockdown.

What have you learned in your Carone Learning course that will most help you in your life? How to endure when things get tough.

How has your Carone Learning course helped you improve your level of health or fitness? I was fairly inactive before starting with Carone Learning. Now I can run for longer times and my strength is improving.

How has your cFitness Academy instructor helped you with your course or your goals? She has stayed in contact with me weekly and asks if I need any help. She is very encouraging and replies to my assignments with helpful tips.

Why did you sign up for a course through cFitness Academy, and how has taking this course online been beneficial? I would not have been able to do a course in person over the past year since the schools are closed in the UK. Carone fitness has helped me to be able to exercise at my own pace.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course: I’ve enjoyed strength training and Carone fitness has helped me to develop good habits in strength training for the future.

Here’s what Luke’s teacher had to say about him:
“Luke is very good at keeping on task! He’s done great self reflecting on his strength workouts to improve in the way he wants. He has gone through some hard times, but stuck to his workouts the best he could with what he had available. I truly admire his work ethic!” – R. Wheelwright

In the Strength Training course students are asked to do an assignment “Analyzing the Athlete”, where students take a look at a specific athlete or athletic position and put together a workout routine specific to that.
Luke’s analysis was very well done: Patrick Mahomes; Football, Quarterback – Exercises to include: Bicep Curls (You need some strong biceps to throw a football very fast or far), Tricep Extensions (Your triceps are also important in throwing the football), Shoulder Press (Your shoulders are also very Important in throwing a football), Weighted squats (Quarterbacks also need to run at times and they better have strong legs to do it. They also need be able to stand their ground when being pulled down), Weighted Lunges (You need a balance of hams and quads in order to prevent injury), Rows (A quarterback needs a strong back to help with throwing the ball)
