Daily Fitness Tip: Aug. 28

Strength Training Tuesday! 

MYTH:  If kids strength train it will stunt their growth.

FACT: Strength training is completely safe for kids, as long as it is done under proper supervision and with good form! Using very light weights (1-4 lbs) or resistance bands is a great way to teach strength training exercises safely.  Performing high repetitions (15-25 reps) with light weight is a great way to build muscle endurance, but it is also very beneficial for building strong bones! So pick up a some weights or resistance bands and try strength training today!
