Accessory Works: Kneeling Squat 🔥
How to Kneeling Squat:
1️⃣ Set the bar to the proper height in a rack. Kneel behind the bar; it may be beneficial to put a mat down to pad your knees. Slide under the bar, racking it across the back of your shoulders. Your shoulder blades should be retracted and the bar tight across your back. Unrack the weight.
2️⃣ With your head looking forward, sit back with your butt until you touch your calves.
3️⃣ Reverse the motion, returning the torso to an upright position.

Why do people believe that lifting weights stunts growth?
Dr. Rob Raponi says the misconception that lifting weights stunts growth likely stems from the fact that injuries to growth plates in immature bones can stunt growth.
However, he points out that this is something that can result from poor form, weights that are too heavy, and a lack of supervision. But it’s not the result of lifting weights correctly.
What this myth doesn’t mention is that participation in almost any type of sport or recreational activity carries a risk of injury. In fact, about 15 to 30 percent of all childhood fractures involve the growth plates.
Your growth plates are the cartilaginous areas of growing tissue at the ends of long bones (like the thigh bone, for example). These plates turn into hardened bone when young people reach physical maturity but are softer during development and are therefore more susceptible to damage.
But just because the growth plates are susceptible to damage doesn’t mean an adolescent or teenager should avoid lifting weights.
“The shared thought among medical professionals is that weightlifting in kids under 18 is safe when properly applied,” says Chris Wolf, DO, sports medicine and regenerative orthopedic specialist at the Bluetail Medical Group.
Proper supervision is key
If your adolescent or teen is interested in participating in a strength training program, make sure they are supervised by a certified personal trainer, coach, or educator who has training in how to design a weightlifting program for kids.
If you have any concerns about your child’s participation in a weightlifting program, talk with their pediatrician or doctor before they start lifting weights.
What is supported by scientific evidence and research is that properly designed and supervised resistance training programs have numerous benefits for kids, including:
* increasing strength and bone strength index (BSI)
* decreasing fracture risk and rates of sports-related injury
* growing self-esteem and interest in fitness. [Source: HealthLine.com]

Niccolò mi ha scritto per chiedermi se avessi un servizio di coaching Online.
Ogni volta che mi viene richiesto rispondo che se non ho occasione di impostare il lavoro dal vivo, preferisco lasciar perdere.
💎 Perché una dei fattori che preferisco di questo lavoro è impostare il gesto agli appassionati
💎 Perché la programmazione resta un bell’insieme di numeri se non contestualizzata al gesto
💎 Perché non ho il tempo di scrivere programmi personalizzati per più di 10 persone.
Ci sono molti professionisti in ogni zona d’Italia, se non avete occasione di incontrare l’allenatore che più vi piace, affidatevi a qualcuno competente vicino a voi. Per quanto si possa essere bravi, ricordiamoci che le alzate con il bilanciere non sono un operazione a cuore aperto.
