Ten unfit fitness exercises for kids
About 70% of young parents want their children to receive exercise from an early age so that they can have a healthy body.
But child care experts point out that prematurely engaging children in certain fitness exercises instead of doing harm to the child’s body can easily cause harm.
Experts introduce: When people exercise excessively, in order to prevent further energy consumption, people will feel extremely fatigued, physically weak, and their brain response will slow down. If excessive exercise leads to impaired brain function, especially children, excessive exercise is very easy to noticeInsufficiency, insomnia, forgetfulness, and even hypoxia.
Unsuitable: Tug-of-war tug-of-war may make children “sad” and “strained”.
From a physiological point of view, the heart of a child is developing, and the autonomic function of the autonomic nerve is not yet perfect. When the limb load increases, the heart rate is mainly increased to increase the blood supply.
The tug of war requires holding your breath hard, sometimes holding your breath for a few seconds at a time. When the belching suddenly turns into an open breath, the venous blood flow will suddenly burst into the atrium and damage the child’s thin atrium wall.
Some medical workers have performed physiological examinations on 250 children aged 5 to 6 years in the tug of war, and found that the heart rate is high. 30% of children returned to normal heart rate 1 hour after the game.
In addition to affecting the heart, tug of war may also hurt the child’s “bones”.
The muscles of the body during childhood are mainly preliminary growth, the strength of the fixed joints is very weak, the bones are large in elasticity and small in hardness, and they can easily cause joint dislocation and soft tissue damage when tug-of-war, inhibit bone growth, and severely cause limb deformation and affect children’s body shape.Bodybuilding.
In addition, tug of war is a confrontational confrontation sport. Children compete well and have a strong sense of collective honour. It is often difficult to control and protect themselves during competitions, and it is easy to cause injuries.
Unsuitable two: Strength training Children grow first and grow taller and later grow weight, and their muscle strength is weak and they are prone to fatigue.
In other words, physical development is dominated by skeletal growth and has not yet entered the peak period of muscle growth.
If the child is prematurely exercising strength-bearing muscles at this time, the first is that the child’s local muscles are too strong, which affects the balanced development of all parts of the body; the second is that the muscles are prematurely stimulated and developed, causing a heavy burden on the heart and other organs; In addition, it may cause local muscle stiffness and loss of normal elasticity.
Therefore, parents should not allow children to engage in strength exercises such as pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, etc. that adults often practice.
If you want to practice muscle strength, it is more suitable to start from the first and second grades of junior high school.
Should not be three: long-distance running, weight-bearing long-distance running is a typical impact movement, the impact on human joints is very high.
Children often run long distance exercises, which is not good for the development of the epiphysis at the joints.
Especially when performing winter long-distance running on hard roads, the impact on the joints and the epiphysis are prone to complications, which affects the child’s growth.
Long-distance running is also a kind of heart-load exercise. Children’s long-distance running prematurely results in an increase in the thickness of the myocardial wall, restricts the expansion of the heart cavity, and affects the development of cardiopulmonary function.
In addition, the proportion of water in the child’s body is relatively relatively permeated, the content of protein and inorganic matter is small, and the muscle strength is weak. If you participate in long-distance running with high energy consumption, it will increase your income and make up for it, hindering normal growth and development.
In addition, with a sandbag tied for weight-bearing running, the child’s running posture is easily deformed, and wrong movements easily lead to sports injuries.
Should not be four: wrench wrist children’s joints in the joints of the limbs are relatively loose, poor rigidity, wrench wrist prone to sprain.
In addition, like so-called tug-of-war, breath-holding is an inevitable phenomenon when the wrist is wrenched. This will cause a sharp rise in the pressure in the chest cavity and hinder the return of venous blood to the heart. After that, a large amount of blood retained in the vein will rush into the atrium and cause damage to the heart wall.Excessive stimulation.
If you use one arm to practice the wrench wrist at both ends, you may cause imbalanced limb development.
Inadequate five: Extreme sports experts believe that children’s physical exercise must first consider the laws of children’s own body growth and development; second, they must consider the anatomical and physiological characteristics of children and adolescents’ bodies.
The child is in the period of growth and development, and all aspects of the organs have not yet matured. It is naturally difficult to withstand the “challenging” extreme sports, and it is easy to cause damage. A large amount of exercise that exceeds the child’s own capacity can cause children.The muscles are in a state of extreme fatigue for a long time, which causes muscle fatigue injury and easily leaves the sequelae of sports injuries.
In addition, in the growing children, the tendons in the joints have not yet fully grown, and the slender wedges are continuously worn away excessively, which will easily form arthritis in the future.
Studies have shown that contractile injuries in childhood are three to four times more likely to develop arthritis in adulthood.
Inappropriate six: Rabbit jumping. When doing rabbit jumping, the weight of the human body is equal to three times its own weight, and the impact force of each bone is equivalent to the increase of its own weight. This has not yet completed the ossification process.For children, it is easy to cause injuries to the ligaments and knee meniscus.
Should not be seven: Invert the child’s intraocular pressure adjustment function immediately, but if the handstand is often performed or each time is too long, it will damage the eye’s adjustment of the intraocular pressure.
Unsuitable eight: Bumper cars are not suitable for children under 10 years old.
Children’s muscles, ligaments, bones, and connective tissues are all immature and very fragile. They are prone to sprains and bruises when subjected to strong vibrations.
Not suitable for nine: scooters are not suitable for children under 8 years old.
The child’s body is in a critical period of development. If you play a scooter for a long time, there will be excessive distribution of leg muscles, affecting the overall development of the body, and even affecting height development.
In addition, when playing a scooter, the waist is contracted, and the feet need to support the body with force. These parts are very easy to be injured, so it is necessary to take good care of your parents, and look for spacious non-traffic areas to play.
Not suitable for ten: community fitness equipment Public fitness equipment has high safety requirements.
For example, the most popular “space walker” is obviously only suitable for adults according to the specifications between its feet, and the warning only covers the form of exercise and health taboos, and there is no special restriction on the age of users.
Many teenagers also use these devices as toys.At present, children’s improper use of fitness equipment causes increasing injuries, even serious injuries and disability.
It is understood that the fitness equipment in the community is in principle equipped for middle-aged and elderly people, and currently no fitness equipment suitable for children has been installed.
Experts point out that premature military special sports are also a kind of injury to underage children, including: fatigue fractures, menstrual disorders, fatigue, eating disorders and emotional depression.
Therefore, experts believe that parents should encourage children to participate in a variety of sports activities, and do not want children to create some miracles of sports in their teenage years.
Some childcare experts believe that, in view of the physical development characteristics of children, parents can let their children perform rope skipping, bouncing, rubber band jumping, small ball shooting, small football, small basketball, swimming, etc.Height without harming the body.
In addition, for children who are not yet mature, it is best not to exercise for more than one hour at a time, with a few minutes interval, and rest after a while.
The amount of exercise a day should not be too large, as long as the child does not feel tired after exercise.
