Exercise at home
It's understandable that parents are overwhelmed by their busy lives and also that they are confused due to all the information on proper parenting being aimed at them. The promising notion underlying these questions is that most parents understand the importance of getting their child or children fit. But where to start?
Busy lives become "barriers" to exercise. To help overcome such “barriers” I recommend a simple body weight programme that can be completed at home. There is no need for equipment, machines, or a lot of space. This home training programme is great for any child up to 12 years old. Of course, you may have to adjust the intensity level based on your child's abilities.
Simple Home Training Programme for Children
1. Start with a light aerobic-type of exercise for 2-3 minutes. (e.g. walking or jogging on the spot)
2. Follow this with 2-3 minutes of active stretches. Start by working from your head down to your toes. Shoulder and arm circles in both directions, trunk twists in both directions, hip circles, leg side-side swings, standing toe touches.
3. Push-ups from your knees or against a wall. Do as many as you can in 1 minute
4. Body Squats: Feet shoulder-width apart, lower your body as if you're sitting in a chair behind you. Repeat this for 1-2 minutes without bending your knees more than 90 degrees.
5. Stomach Crunches: Lying on your back with your knees bent, feet on the floor and hands on your thighs. Raise your shoulders off the ground until your hands slide up your leg and cover your knees. Return to starting position and continue for 1-2 minutes.
6. Wall Sit: Leaning against a wall with your feet shoulder-width apart, slowly lower your body to a sitting position. Make sure your feet are in line with your knees and not too close to the wall. Stay in this position for up to 2 minutes.
7. Shake your body out, get a drink of water and repeat 1-6 in order two more times.
This programme will take anywhere from 15-25 minutes, depending on your child's fitness level. Try this programme at least three days a week. Don't forget to change things up every couple of weeks to keep your child interested. Variety is the spice of life.
