Why shouldn’t children only use their own bodyweight?

It can be too easy for some children and to

strenuous for others.

Signals that it is not allowed to use weights,

which is a shame for the children, who could have had a

lot of succes with weights-training, because they maybe

don’t have talent for many other sports and some can feel

unpleasant socially among other children.

are there no problems then
Are there no problems then?

-Potentially there is a lot of problems, the point is that it

isn’t much different from other sport activities.

-Especially knee and back are often in an exposed position.

-Children can be spontaneous and out of control in their

movements, and a wrong position/movement under load involves a risk.

practical recommendations 1 of 2
PRACTICAL RECOMMENDATIONS (1 of 2)

Starting point:

- 8-15 repetitions eventhough the RPM is more likely

to be 18 using the x kg. weights

Subsequent:

- When the child has increased strength and improved to a higher technique level, it should work closer to its RPM.

- More than 15 rep. is often borring and demotivating (!)

- Various kinds of movements. Different movements in the same joint is important.
