Recommendations for Physical Activity
Growing bodies require a great deal of activity to keep them healthy and promote wellness into adulthood. The CDC has specific recommendations for youth to get the best benefit from their exercise.
It is recommended that at least 3 days per week should include muscle-strengthening activities within the 60 minutes of daily physical activity. Muscle-strengthening activities include resistance training and lifting weights. At Motus Ninjas, a lot of our activities include utilizing your own body weight for resistance training in order to build muscle strength.
Most of the 60 minutes per day should be spent in either moderate- or vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity. For optimal health results, 3 days per week should definitely include vigorous-intensity activity. Examples include aerobic dancing, running, swimming, jumping rope, and of course one of the most fun ways to meet the requirement for vigorous activity is through Motus Ninjas’s fun ninja warrior gym for kids.
Healthy bones are incredibly important to develop in your youth, as it can help prevent osteoporosis later in life. Children and adolescents should get 3 days per week of bone-strengthening activities in their active time. Bone-strengthening activities are sometimes called weight-bearing or weight-loading activity and produce a force on the bones to promote growth and strength. Common examples include jumping jacks, running, brisk walking, and weight-lifting.
As you can see, many of these different types of physical activities play into each other and with the way we exercise with our Motus Ninjas kids fitness classes in Kansas City- Lee’s Summit and Liberty it’s easy and fun for your child to get the activity they need for optimal growth.
