I trained my 6th grader today…I love that 1:1 time with him! The key with youth training is keeping it fun and challenging all at the same time.
The load is all relative to each person’s strength abilities, focusing on range of motion and proper form as the main goals. Teach and model it while they’re young so they make it a lifestyle of their own someday!
Strength training for kids is very safe and doable IF they are taught the proper how-to, along with gym safety and etiquette. My little one uses body weight in his gymnastics practice and is as solid as an ox!
This workout today:
2 sets of each complex below, super setting the 2 exercises at a time-
•Shoulder: DB overhead press.
