I often get asked about strength training for adolescents. Is it safe? Is it beneficial? The answer to both of those question is yes… with a caveat. Strength training can help children and teenagers to withstand the stresses that team sports or impact sports places on their bodies. But it’s important that they are lifting weights and training safely and appropriately.
Working with Personal Best Therapy, to identify and eliminate any muscle imbalances which may be present, and then working with a qualified training coach, like Tom Murch at Winners 2000, will ensure your child stays safe.
