Choosing a sport for your child, parents are trying in advance to find out about positive and negative aspects of this species. Those who wish to give the baby to a section of weightlifting or powerlifting sessions, I was wondering whether the impact of physical activity on the growth of the child?

Exercises with a barbell do the person below?

It is noticed that girls can grow up to 19 years, boys up to 22. The active phase of growth in adolescents occurs:
• In girls from 11 to 13
• The guys from 13 to 16.
During this period, a child for a year can add 7-10 cm So the parent does not want to give them to the sections of weightlifting, in order not to slow down the process.

There is a perception that active classes and heavy loads will damage the fragile body. Growth hormones will be spent to increase muscle mass, energy and nutrients will be directed in the wrong direction. The growing body can't handle the load, which will adversely affect the formation of the child's body and its internal organs and systems.

Ongoing research has shown that it is not. In compliance with proper food, all rules for the exercise and the precise calculation, any harm weightlifting will bring. Exercise, on the contrary, helps to strengthen bones and muscles.

If you measure the height of a man before and after a workout with a barbell, it will change and people "reduced" 3 cm Is permissible.
The growth of any person in the course of the day changes. Without the stress difference measurements made in the morning and evening will be 1 – 2 see If you were carrying heavy bags or drag the furniture, you could become shorter by 1.5 cm or more for some time.
Changes will be associated with the seal of the intervertebral vertebrae. With age anyone begins to decrease in growth. In 60 years you will be below 2-3 cm, and 80 – 5-7 cm in contrast to 22 years.

Weight training will not affect growth

Usually in the section associated with heavy physical exercise such as powerlifting, weightlifting and bodybuilding, starting to recruit kids at the age of 8-9 years. Children's body begins to take shape, and physical activity help to develop bone structure and muscle. There is a perception that exercises with a barbell slow down these processes. Supposedly the bar on the shoulders puts pressure on the spine and this prevents the child to grow.

A weightlifting will tell you that is a myth.
A week for a workout spent about 8 hours, clean the rods on the shoulders of only 30 minutes Is 0.3% of the total time, the remaining 99.7% of nothing is pressing on the spine and the baby is growing.
It is proven that physical activity, exercising with a barbell in particular, stimulate the production of growth hormones. Most of them have kids will go towards the development and growth of the skeleton.

Judging by the growth of well-known athletes weightlifters, it should be noted that the chunky and stunted people are more resistant to stay on his feet. Due to this, the success is mainly low-growing tough. They can lift more weight and longer keep him.

Therefore, if you or your child want to do the heavy lifting, no doubt. Any physical activity under the supervision of an experienced coach will not bring harm.
