Children's fitness



Children and Exercise


Baby after he learns to focus on distant objects also, is always on the move.
Even before be can crawl he has worked out his own highly individual way of morning round.
Never discourage him from his first attempts at being mobile.
Give his curiosity and spirit of adventure free rein.
He needs your praise and support to go ahead. At about one year, with strength coming to his leg muscles, he would start attempts to stand and then to move with standing support and ultimately to walk.
He is continuously making greater efforts. These efforts provide adequate exercise to that lump of flesh and bones, that he is.
Still you can encourage your baby's physical development from a very early age by playing simple exercise games. For example let the baby lie on his back.
He may be encouraged to hold your thumbs. Stretch one arm to the sides and then back across his chest and repeat.
The bay will be happy if he can see you doing that and follows your movements.
Such movements create a subconscious impression also on the psyche of the baby that there is something like exercise in which movements of the limbs are appreciated and help the body.
