Description

Resistance Training for Kids: Right from the Start
By Avery D. Faigenbaum, Ed.D., CSCS, FACSM and James E. McFarland, Ed.M., CSCS

Despite traditional fears and misinformed concerns associated with youth resistance training, new insights into the design of youth fitness programs have highlighted the importance of enhancing muscular fitness during childhood and continuing participation in strength-building activities throughout adolescence. While factors such as heredity, training experience and health habits (e.g., nutrition and sleep) will influence the rate and magnitude of adaptation, seven principles that determine the effectiveness of youth resistance training are the principles of (a) Progression, (b) Regularity, (c) Overload, (d) Creativity, (e) Enjoyment, (f) Socialization and (g) Supervision. These basic principles can be remembered as the PROCESS of youth resistance training.
