Does your child participate in any weight bearing exercises? Although we often think strength training is something for adults or body builders, even our young students can benefit from the occasional bout with strength training for smarts. In the graphic below, we look into simple ways to incorporate strength training into a student’s life and thereby making them healthier. This is a great activity for the whole family. Don’t have weights? Use soup cans or water bottles. It is vitally important for parents to use their imagination, keep their students engaged and participate in family and team challenges. Try to beat your student in a push up contest or do wall squats while you recite poetry. The sky’s the limit for incorporating strength training into your day!
