Teens are always looking for the next big supplement to hit the market. However, they don't always consider the effects it could potentially have on them. These days when a bodybuilder, or any person for that matter, walks into a health food store they are bombarded with the countless amounts of supplements that plaster the walls. There are those for weight loss, muscle gain, immune system health, relaxation and for just about any other problem, desire or goal that an individual wishes to fix with a supplement.
Being physically active on a regular basis is a goal for many people, regardless of age. But when it comes to year-olds interested in weight training, it's reasonable to question whether strength training is safe and how to get started. The good news is that most teens can participate in a fitness program that includes resistance training, cardiovascular exercise, and competitive or recreational sports. The first thing to consider when designing a regimen of exercise for a year-old boy or girl is the pace of the workout. The teen years, especially the early ones, are not the time to hit the weights hard and fast. It's important to stress the point that progressing to heavier weights doesn't happen overnight.
Bodybuilding is a sport or activity in which the primary objective is to develop the size of the skeletal muscles. Though there are many theories about the effects of weightlifting on young kids and teenagers, scientific evidence proves that weightlifting has many beneficial effects on the body. It is also a very good and effective way to treat depression [ 3 ]. Lifting heavy weights may speed up the closing of growth plates before they have had a chance to fully develop.
Guest over a year ago. ReneeBarnesOrozco over a year ago. Well i haven't seen any harm in it yet and i'm 15 started about a year ago so when i started i was 14 and i'm pretty buffed now and can't see any side effects so far but it's best not to start at the age of 12, id say start about age when your fully developed.
