Continuous exercise: Our body actually starts exercising muscle starting at birth. Babies get stronger in their core muscles first, and around 9 months get control over their fingers. Children who continue to stay active will continue to build muscle. In middle school, kids can start lifting light weights with more repetitions. Around high school, the weight can be increased unless joint or ligament pain occurs.
