Tuesday’s Tip - At what age is it safe for kids to exercise?
There is a lot of differing opinions and research, so nothing is really agreed on. We look at the amount of force being placed on the joints. 3 x Bodyweight for gymnastics, 5-12 times bodyweight for running and every pound that they are over weight adds 4 pounds.
Having said that, consensus is 6/7 years of age, avoid powerlifting and max lifts and work on form. Make their exercise play and their play exercise and they stick with it and learn how to move better, feel better, live better pain free. Today’s tip was influenced by #lifewithlily
