Resistance Training for Youth

July, 2023
Resistance training is a form of exercise that requires body segments to be moved against external resistance. The external resistance may be provided by machines, free weights, elastic bands or tubing, or body weight; when using body weight, the training is often called calisthenics (for example, pushups or sit-ups). Youth are young people between the ages of 7 and 17.
