Adults have found strength training to be a safe and efficient technique of conditioning. This style of exercise has become increasingly popular among children and adolescents as a means of improving health, fitness, and athletic performance. Strength training is beneficial for teenagers and even pre-adolescents when done properly and with perfect technique. A general strengthening program should include the following:

  • Age- appropriate exercises
  •  Teaching proper movement patterns
  • Focus on major muscle groups, including the core
  • Train slowly and constantly 

Run Ready Melbourne customises unique circuit training and fitness training for teens, depending on their abilities.

Galen, a well-known ancient Greek physician, published 87 extensive writings on how to improve one’s health (correct diet), cardiovascular fitness, and physical strength. Sport science is the application of scientific knowledge to sports activity. Sport science aims to assist athletes improve their performance and endurance while reducing the risk of injury in preparation for events and contests.

It’s used to assist identify strengths and limitations so that a training programme may be tailored to each individual, from athletes to the elderly and everyone in between.

Athletes are kept up to speed on latest training regimens, testing, and preparation by sports scientists.

Health and Fitness Melbourne

No. It is not recommended for teens to ingest any kind of supplements during training. A nutritious diet rich in protein, fruits, and vegetables, appropriate hydration, commitment to the exercise program, correct form while exercising, adequate rest, and slow and steady progress are all part of a better overall approach for success.

Active play helps children enhance their body awareness, control, and balance during childhood. Strength training, on the other hand, can be a vital part of an overall fitness regimen as early as age 7 or 8, as long as the child is mature enough to follow directions and can practice good technique and form.

Body weight exercises , rubber tubing, medicine balls, free weights, and weight machines can all be used for strength training. For a balanced fitness program, strength training should be combined with cardiovascular activities like jogging and riding. It's also important to stress the need of a healthy diet and proper hydration.

There are general things that you must remember when you start your teen's fitness journey. 

- Consult certified coaches like Run Ready strength and conditioning coaches

- Always warm-up before and cool down after each workout

- Keep workouts light and age-appropriate

- Teach proper technique and supervise

- Take a breather and have fun! 

Strength training is generally considered to be safe for teenagers. Injury rates are low, with the most prevalent causes being a lack of supervision or teaching, incorrect technique, or attempting to lift too much weight. Muscle strengthening also aids in the development of bone strength.

As long as the weight is light enough, children can safely lift adult-size weights. One or two sets of 12 to 15 repetitions are usually sufficient. Weights aren't the only source of resistance. Other helpful techniques include resistance tubing and body-weight workouts like pushups. It's really about what the individual can handle, teens come in all different shapes and sizes, every child is looked at on a case by case basis.
