Strength Training for Middle School


Sensible Resistance Training Benefits Children-Strength Training for Middle School

Strength training exercise provides so many advantages over other types of exercise. It appeals to not just the athletic children, but also those who

  • just do not move enough;
  • who are not super coordinated;
  • who are overweight and children who are in a need of a boost in their self-confidence.

Children prefer activities that alternate brief bouts of high-effort movement with longer periods of rest/recovery. Strength training also provides visual reinforcement, because young exercisers can easily see how much weight they are lifting and how much progress they have made. The success rate that overweight boys and girls experience when it comes to youth strength training is great. For children carrying extra body weight, activities that involve a lot of jumping, running, and sports movements are often undesirable. Sensible strength training actually favors larger youth and gives them a much-needed sense of physical accomplishment. Because the amount of weight lifted is positively related to body weight, heavier children can usually train with heavier weight loads than their lighter peers.

Strength Training for Middle School Children is a key component of our mission at HappyLee Fitness Studio.

Preparing children to lead active adult lives is important.
