A FUNdamental Approach for Treating Pediatric Dynapenia in Kids
By: Avery D. Faigenbaum, EdD, CSCS, FACSM* and Laura Bruno, EdD
Regular participation in resistance training offers unique health- and fitness-related benefits for children. A well-developed musculoskeletal system is less susceptible to injury and stronger girls and boys will be better prepared for sport and for life. New insights into the design of youth exercise programs continue to highlight the importance of improving strength fitness early in life by integrating resistance training into fitness programs. A FUNdamental approach to youth fitness training provides an opportunity for all girls and boys to enhance their strength and improve their motor skills while making friends, having fun, and learning something new.
