Weight lifting kids: Weight lifting can actually be healthy at a young age (elementary school) but the focus is different at different ages.

Any of the martial arts are great; running, swimming(if you have access to a pool), tennis, etc. They might want to do what a friend is going to participate in; the sky is the limit.As long as the child is interested he/she will enjoy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In the range of..: There is reasonable data to suggest that for those looking to optimize muscle hypertrophy(bodybuilding) that you should aim for a protein intake of 0.7 to 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight.

I would think though within one month that you would notice a change in your physical appearance. ...Read more

Some folks like ultra-marathons. You're a winner just by trying. As nike logo says, just do it! ...Read more
