Using Games to Help Kids Build Muscle

Kids in the age of technology often have a tough time getting healthy, but games can help kids to build muscle and have fun at the same time. There are many different types of games that will help kids to build muscle and this can lead to them becoming healthier adults.

You don’t have to be too formal when it comes to games that build muscle. Kids enjoy simple games such as hide and seek, tossing a ball, and playing tag. But if you specifically want to help your child with strength training there are some fun games that will target this area of fitness.

For example playing tug of war allows your child to pull resistance and exercises many different muscle groups at once. They’ll be flexing the muscles of their upper and lower body. Without knowing it they’ll be getting a total body workout.

You can also have pushup competitions. While that may not sound fun to many adults, kids love to compete at just about anything. Host a pushup competition to see who can do the most in a minute. If your child can’t do a full pushup, try modifying it by bending the knees or doing a wall pushup.

Crab races can be another fun way to build muscle strength. Kids will pretend to be crabs by leaning back on their hands and using their arms and legs to move around backwards. This provides strength training for the biceps, triceps, and lower body muscles.

You can also add imagination to your play. For example, kids love to pretend to be animals by swinging their arms, stomping their feet, or crawling on the ground. All of this activity can help them to build muscle.

Weight bearing exercise such as jumping is also very helpful for normal bone development in children. Jump rope can be great for this, but you can also have kids just jump around and dance in order to get this benefit.

If your child is into video games, you may also want to look into games that are actually promoting exercise. There are several that use body movement to move characters in the game. However, you don’t need to invest in technology if you can outside and enjoy fresh air while running, jumping, and playing.

As a parent, it’s also important to be a good example of an active lifestyle. When your child sees you participating in activity, he or she will be more likely to follow in your footsteps. Games can help kids to build muscle and develop habits that last a lifetime.
