Stay Fit #7: Youth Resistance Training
There's a misconception that strength training is harmful to pre-pubescent youth. In this episode I explain why this is simply not true, and in fact resistance training is recommended for boys and girls. I also recommend you check out www.LTAD.ca, which is a site dedicated to Long Term Athlete Development. It's a great resource I'm sure you will find interesting!

Start young and stay fit!
