Children are not small adults

Sometimes, however, the processes in the body are similar. As the link between cardiorespiratory fitness and cardiovascular risk in adults is known, a Spanish research team conducted a study of children aged six to ten compared to the same children after two years at ages 8 to 12.

So they found that the risk was inversely proportional to aerobic capacity. That is, if exercise is reduced, the risk of cardiovascular events increases. Constant movement in childhood and throughout life, helps protect our children from cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, myocardial infarction, heart failure and stroke. So help your children find the sport that suits them very early on and try to keep it (at least as a hobby) if possible for a lifetime. In difficult cases, try team sports. They make friends that are difficult to separate.
