Increasing childhood obesity is driving a review of the exercise recommendations of many countries for children and youth. Most exercise specialists now recommend that children spend at least an hour each day in play involving moderate to vigorous exercise, and that periods of inactivity of more than two hours are discouraged. This means not letting them sit in front of the TV or computer game for more than two daylight hours.


Children should accumulate at least 60 minutes, and up to several hours, of age appropriate physical activity on all, or most days of the week.

Children should participate in several bouts of physical activity lasting 15 minutes or more each day.

Children should participate each day in a variety of age-appropriate physical activities designed to achieve optimal health, wellness, fitness and performance benefits.


Extended periods (periods of two hours or more) of inactivity are discouraged for children, especially during the daytime hours.


Weight training for children and adolescents results in disruption of the delicate bone developmental process and leading to growth abnormalities.


Competition between friends or other children in the training group can lead to selection of weight that is too heavy, or the use of poor technique that could lead to injury.


Strength training for children is not weightlifting, power lifting or bodybuilding in their purest forms, which are aimed at competition. These distinctions, and the distractions, should be clear to parents, trainers and children.


Benefits of Strength Training for Children

  • Children may benefit in the following ways:

  • Muscle strength and endurance

  • Improved sports performance

  • Physical fitness

  • Weight maintenance

  • Strong bones

  • A fitness habit for future benefit.

    A WORD OF CAUTION : Heavy and unsurprised training with weights early in life may retard or harm the regular growth of the body. Exercising should be a compulsory part of the school syllabus. Apart from developing sports and specific skills, it promotes agility, flexibility, is a great psychological booster and builds self-confidence. Young children below the age of 18 should refrain from overhead lifting of weights as it can strain or compress the spine or the back, which is still in the process of growth.
