Is it Dangerous for Children to do HIIT?

Strength training, not weightlifting

When practiced and controlled properly, strength training provides many benefits to young athletes and up-and-coming sport stars. Strength training is even a good idea for kids who simply want to look and feel better. In fact, according to extensive research, strength training can put children on a ‘lifetime path to better health and fitness’.

Weightlifting, bodybuilding or powerlifting must not be confused with Strength Training. These activities are driven by competition, with participants striving to lift heavier weights or build bigger muscles than those of other athletes. This type of exercise is not for the young ones. It can put too much strain and pressure on young muscles, tendons and areas of cartilage that haven’t yet turned to bone, nor developed correctly yet. This is paramount when incorrect technique is used just so a heavier and larger amount of weight can be seen as an achievement.

For children, light resistance and controlled movements are best. There must be a special emphasis on proper technique, controlled movements and guidance. Your child can do many strength training exercises with his or her own body weight instead of machines or equipment.

Encouraging your child to do BBS (Body By Science), might be a great idea with the focus on controlled movement, and a lighter more manageable weight. This will encourage strength building instead of muscle building, and will help to combat possible health implications in the future.

Teenagers can benefit from BBS, lighter weight

Children can benefit from short, high-intensity workout spurts to boost anaerobic capacity, with the key focus on movement control, muscular strength, and other physical attributes.

Adults and teenagers, may need to place a greater emphasis on improving their muscle aerobic capacity as oppose to children. Children’s muscles recover rapidly from high-intensity exercise, and possibly is the reason why children are able to do repeated exercise and activities when most of us adults continue to feel exhausted.

There may also be important health implications for developing children. Metabolic diseases, including diabetes and many forms of cancer, are increasing in prevalence in teens and younger adults but are still rarely seen in children. If the child continues to do strength training, anaerobic exercise as well as the bursts of aerobic exercise (which children do automatically), into their teen years, maybe we’ll see a decrease in these terrible diseases. It might be the case that the loss of muscle aerobic capacity between childhood and early adulthood is a key maturation step that allows metabolic diseases to take hold.

If your child already accompanies you with your BBS workout, let us know how its going. And if you’re about to start, keep us in the loop with the progress!

Ever heard of Body By Science (BBS)?

If you’re wanting to increase muscle mass, decrease fat levels, improve health markers and cardio fitness, not to mention gaining significant strength, then BBS is what you’re needing to try.

In conjunction to body strength, a recent study from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has given new meaning to the concept of brain power by suggesting that physical strength might stem as much from exercising the nervous system as the muscles it controls.

 

Interview with Tang Mo, Eyekandi Thailand Office

In our Eyekandi Office here in Thailand, we have incorporated the BBS and Bulletproof lifestyle into our work environment. Christian, CEO of EyeKandi, is a certified Superhuman Coach and is also training our staff as well as suppliers in the BBS and nutrition programs.

Below is an interview we conducted with one of our staff members, Tang Mo.

Tang Mo is a young lady, 19 years of age, with many aspirations in the accounting and financial sector. She has partaken in a short interview to inform you all of the wonderful improvements BBS has made for her.

What was the reason you decided to start training the BBS way?

“I started training BBS as I wanted to keep myself healthy. I have learned a lot from Christian, and he has helped me to know more about BBS.”

How far into your training did you realise the positive impact BBS has on your lifestyle?

“After about 1 month of training I noticed a difference in my strength and body tone.”

What amount of weight did you start training with, and how much can you lift now?

“I started with only 20kg, and now I train with 100kg!”

What significant changes to your body have you noticed, resulting from the BBS training, that you would like to share?

“Well now I have very strong muscles, which I never thought was possible.”

 Would you recommend this type of training to other people your age? If so, why?

“Yes, I do recommend this type of training to other people, because it is like sharing knowledge and trying new things. If you want to become stronger you should try BBS.”

 

EyeKandi is in the process of making a BBS app for iOS, which will help improve your training, track your progress and provide you with an ease of access to your fitness and BBS life.

 

“If you’re trying to increase strength – whether you’re Joe Shmoe, a weekend warrior, a gym rat or an athlete – training with high loads is going to result in greater strength adaptations,” said Jenkins, an assistant professor of exercise physiology at Oklahoma State University who conducted the research for his dissertation at Nebraska.

High Intensity 

“To stimulate your body to make an adaptive change, your exercise intensity must cross a certain threshold before your body will respond. By training to muscular failure, we send an alarm to your body that more muscle and improved metabolic are needed. Also, we use a training protocol called “SuperSlow” which involves lifting and lowering the weights over a 10 second time frame. This eliminates acceleration and momentum which keeps the muscle under continuous load and more effectively fatigues the muscle.”
