This book is aimed at educating and preparing children of the ages 6 to 12 in the basics of Olympic Weightlifting and Strength Training. The book familiarizes teachers, parents, and kids with the fundamentals of lifting and resistance training. The book starts by explaining how muscles work by burning energy and moving the nutrients around the body organs. Young children need to be educated on the process of transport of energy from food to cells allover the body. They then will understand how strength-training helps the body grow and stay healthy and fit. Resistance exercise is defined as the effort to stimulate muscles to grow and adapt to lifting. The strong muscles stimulate the bones to deposit minerals and remain strong. Strong muscles and bones help the individual to maintain high level of health and fitness. Weightlifting is introduced by warming up without weights, which is followed by lifting light plates as an intermediary transition to serious lifting. The reader is introduced to the equipments and terminology of Weightlifting that should assist him/her to decipher the arcane language of strength-training. The book's main theme evolves on how to offer children the option of becoming Olympic Weightlifters when they are young enough to accomplish such an extraordinary goal. The book's main tools are the simplicity and rigorousness of exercising for BIG IDEAS. Unless the workout plan was simple and logical, it would not lead to the life-long commitment to exercise, health, and fitness. The authors advocate the role of managing and executing exercise planning as a life-long endeavor of positive accomplishments and enriching the child's life.
