New Govt Exercise Guidelines--Quote of the Day


"We don't want the kids in the gym lifting weights."

Rear Adm. Penelope Royall, deputy assistant secretary for health. in a Yahoo article (http://health.yahoo.com/news/reuters/us_exercise_guidelines_usa.html) on new exercise guidelines.


I don't think 7 year old kids should be lifting weights either. I think you missed the point of the article. They are referring to kids; as in little kids, not teenagers.


kids have been "lifting weights" for a long long long...long time like helping out on the farm back in the day, yet i don't see them growing up deformed or crippled

the human body can resist weight, what an earth-shattering fact
