Topic - Children and Training

Daniels735 - on 23 Feb 2013
Afternoon

I'm looking for more information on climbing training and children. I've found pages of text about kids and weight lifting but nothing really specific about climbing, just one UKC article.

What i'm interested in is whether exercises such as the plank, press-ups, leg raises etc i.e. body weight and core exercises are going to cause damage to developing bodies or are they beneficial?

My gut instinct says, that as exercises like the plank aren't adding massive extra loads and if built up gradually are fine. I'd like some science to back this up, can anyone help?
