How should I structure a fitness program for a 9 year old male?

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

How would I go about structuring and implementing a fitness program for a 9 year old male who has never undergone any serious physical training before? I understand that you should not use weights due to the risk of stunting growth and that you should provide a nutritious diet with a balance of protein and carbs. What I want to know is what exercises and how many reps, sets and circuits should I apply to increase muscle growth and density and how much cardio should be required to improve stamina? I have never done this before and so if you can give as detailed a reply as possible that would be helpful.

You really need to start where he is at. That is, check out his fitness levels. Children normally do lots of running around, climbing, kicking ball, throwing stones, cycling, swimming etc. Start off with these and see how well and far he can swim, run, play ball, etc. Even working on improving his abilities to swim, and his stamina for cycling, playing ball, walking, running, etc, will help. If he can walk 1 mile or run or cycle 1 mile already, then work on extending the distance, or shortening the time for these.
A child of 9 years of age could be expected to help with household chores that might involve a bit of weightlifting, such as leaving out rubbish, bringing in wood or coal, etc, making the bed, which involves lifting the mattress. You could see what he can do in those areas and build on them. I would not be so worried about stunting growth as hurting his back. If you want to improve his fitness, then there is no need for heavy weights (these could hurt his joints). You could introduce a few weights using a filled water bottle in each hand but why not use his own body weight for things like press ups, squats etc. If he is not able to do these (perhaps because of weight or low fitness levels), then get him to do more exercise of the swimming, cycling, walking type. Children that age should be active for at least 90 minutes a day doing these kinds of activities.

Are there provisions in the health care bill that will actually reduce health care costs?

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Health care now costs 16 percent of our GNP. What will be the effect on this percentage if Obama’s health care bill is passed?

The CBO says it will add to health care costs. They are nonpartisan and have studied the health care plan. That is why it will hopefully be defeated.

how to get into holistic nutrition counseling without going through a hokey sounding online school?

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

I have a bachelor’s in nutrition, about 5 years in various human services jobs and an interest in holistic stuff. I want to use my interests and talents in some kind of fun job. I was thinking of doing holistic nutrition counseling but a lot of the schools I find for that seem pretty hokey and aren’t accreditted universities or anything. Any suggestions?

After a little test of typing ‘holistic nutrition counseling’ into google and following a few links that caught my eye I have discovered something- some holistic nutrition counselors that I have found don’t claim to have a special related degree, but seem to be making a living out of it.

-has a BA in education.

-One of the founders doesn’t even claim to have schooling

I would suggest trying to network with a few people who do this sort of thing for a living and maybe even try a retreat or two to make some connections. The more people you contact that actually do this for a living the better chance of finding what works for you. Most sites I have found have contact links and I’d be willing to bet that you’d get a few responses by dropping a quick line to them. I think you maybe further ahead in this pursuit then you might think. Good Luck!
