Dr. J’s One Year Old Son Lifting Weights!

With childhood obesity reaching epidemic proportions in North America – we need to make changes and fast! A landmark 2010 study in the Journal Pediatrics debunks the myth that children who lift weights may stunt their growth. As long as they are supervised, instructed on proper form, and don’t lift excessive weights resistance exercise for children is beneficial. Now that the kids are on summer vacation – get them active – preferably outside!
