Weight plate: Be creative!

The latest underarmor ad is pure energy to rush to the gym: ‘be the hardest worker in the room ‘๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ช I ve heard Dwayne Johnson mantra many times but it’s so true that it works everytime.

For kids training, where boredom is the main enemy, I ll add ‘BE CREATIVE‘.

Weight plates are a great way to spice up your training with innovative exercises (check the video link under), especially for total body workout. Yes, they can definitely be used in more ways than just to load up a barbell.

They allow a wider range of motion than dumbbell or barbell and are easy to grab for children.

They develop strength in two main ways:

Getting used to exercising with weight before using dumbbell, kettlebell, barbells (resistance bands can be used with the same goal). I ll recommend using them for balance 1 leg exercise (lunge, Bulgarian split..) before switching to squat.

Going beyond your bodyweight plateau: dips, pull up and pushups with weight plate are great exercises to go beyond your BODYWEIGHT limit.

They offer other advantages:

Targeting specific muscle with Multiple gripsplates in ways dumbbells can’t (abs exercise for instance).

Using weight plate to mix your regular workout, they work great as finisher moves.

In the video link right under I ll show you weight plate exercises for each muscle group.

ABS OF STEEL: SIXPACK FOR KIDS

A healthy diet, some cardio workout and Kids’s faster metabolism are key factors to reach a sixback but it s not what you re looking for if you came here. You want practical tips and exercises.

I ll emphasize on how to develop the size and shape of your abdominal muscles to show a perfect sixpack and how to develop a strong core to get abs of steel.

The most effective exercise to get a six pack? …. None. The abdominal muscles learn very quickly and you ll have to shock them again and again with different exercises to get constant progress in strength and looks.

You ll have to hit the upper and lower abs, the lats, the middle line and the good news is that you ll come to love it and you ll love showing it!

You ll need to diversify your exercises to avoid boredom and stagnation: hanging abs raise, parallete abs, rolling wheel or barbel for the core, resistance bands, weight for a nice 3D effect…

Don’t worry, it’s not a blank list, in the video right under, I ll show you all those exercises.

How about frequency? You brush you teeth after ever meal, the Same rule apply: do a 10 min abs training everyday after your workout or in front of your tv.

you re not discourage yet? Perfect, its time to proof test what I preach right here ๐Ÿ‘‡:

Superset exercises for kids

My mantra is known by many of you by now, DIVERSIFY your kids workout and add FUN! Proper form, focus, grind, tempo, concentration, will be easier to implement if you respect this rule (DIVERSIFY WORKOUT).

SUPERSET is A golden tool to diversify.

SUPERSET will allow you to work two opposite muscle groups in a row, with a minimum pause in between: biceps/triceps ; chest/back; quad/ischio…

It ll pump up the muscles, trigger more gains and allow you to work more muscles in a limited time.

SUPERSET can also be used to work the same muscle with 2 different exercises in a row. For example dumbbell press followed by pushups; pushups followed by wide dips; different wide range of barbell curls…

Finally, SUPERSET can be used to work two linked muscle groups to fatigue and pump up the muscle. Here are some of my favorites: Dumbbells shrug immediately followed by dumbbells kick back; kettlebell swing followed by kettlebell shoulder press.

I recommande doing full SUPERSET WORKOUT (VIDEO Below) but you can implement them at the end of any muscle sets as a finisher exercise.

Time to proof test what I preach right here ๐Ÿ‘‡:

Benefits of resistance bands in kids training

I recently posted an article about the importance of diversifying kids training with fun challenging workouts. Resistance bands are the cheapest most versatile equipment you can add when you wish to diversify with various equipment.

They are affordable, take No space but it’s not the main reasons resistance bands come high (if not on top) on my equipment list.

STRENGHT: Before implementing dumbbells or any fitness machine, start by using resistance bands to learn the proper form of dumbbell or barbell moves. Proper form shall always be your main concern. You can mimic every moves such as:

barbel curl using a band locked under your feet,

triceps extension with a band locked in a branch or bar….(VIDEO link under)

CROSSING THE FRONTIER: pull ups, muscle ups, one arm pull ups are too hard? Put a resistance band on the bar and put your feet in the loop , it ll help you master the move. The lighter the band the harder the exercise.

CARDIO: adding a resistance band to some dynamic moves will max your effort.

Try: resistance band 2 meters sprints followed by high knees

Resistance band jumps with the band looped in a kettlebell is also a great exercise.

As always, it times to proof test what I preach in my workout right here:

Diversify your kid’s workout

You can’t expect the same level of dedication in workouts from a kid than from an adult. Boredom is the enemy of progress, especially at a young age. The secret is simple: DIVERSIFY.

I usually prefer dynamic total body workouts for kids as they ll mobilize different muscle groups.

But you can still spend an entire workout on the same body part without risking boredom. So Forget the iron rule of 4*10 if your kid is under 10, its too repetitive. I advise to Spice up your workout by changing gear every set: resistance band, slides, kettlebell, dumbbell, trx, parallete, the possibilities are endless...

you don’t have all those gears? A pair OF socks will easily replace the slides , a coconut or watermelon can replace the medecine ball, bottle of water for dumbbells…outdoor bench are also outstanding (check my workout).

Its time to proof what I preach: Check out my latest triceps workout, I ll show you a few fun variations:

Dumbbell workouts for kids: why and how

As Bruce lee said ‘There is No limit. There is only plateaus. And you must no stay there, you must go beyond them‘ . It just need to come at the right time with the proper precautions and supervision but not only for the obvious safety reasons, mostly because dumbbell moves are mostly static movement that can discourage kids.

I advocate starting With BODYWEIGHT exercises (pushups, squat, burpees, pull ups variation) and coordination moves (ladder drills are wonderful).

When the form is proper, MOVE to kettlebell workouts and resistance bands workout. They consist of dynamic moves, mobilize multiple muscle groups, and will boost both strenght and conditioning. I recently posted an article on why I consider kettlebell to be the king of kid exercise (check it).

And now the time is proper to include dumbbell moves.START light of course, No more than 1/5th of the weight of the kid and even less for arms and shoulders.

Remember that fun (and grind) must be a big part of a kid training, so I suggest to combine total dumbbell body moves with so moves that ll focus more on the muscle.

Right under, You ll find three dumbbell workouts:

SHOULDER DUMBBELL WORKOUT

BICEPS DUMBBELL WORKOUT

CHEST DUMBBELL WORKOUT

Feel free to check my weekly workout videos as I often include dumbbell MOVES.

How fitness helped me to bounce back after YouTube suspended my channel

I recently posted an article about the power of fitness communities. My recent misadventure with YouTube comes as a testimony.

Fitness and social medias are my obsessions. As I said previously ‘Goals, grit and perseverance towards success are defining my daily action to reach my Top level goal: REACHING THE NUMBER ONE SPOT of kid fitness social media hierarchy.

Everything is in service of this vision, this top level goal.ยด

When you want to grow your community you have to be passionate about your subject, to post great quality materials and to engage on social media.

Unfortunately, when you re not ranking number 1 yet, the limit between engaging, commenting and spamming is a very thin line that YouTube takes very seriously.

When you re Messi or Ronaldo, you can provoke the referee, for the normal players, its a direct red card.

Without prior notices and with no consideration on the perfect record I had for a couple of years, YouTube decided to ‘suspend’ my channel GABRIELFITNESSKID.

The appeal process is an automatic response and the channel, content and subscribers just disappear. Not cool from YouTube but don’t waste your time waiting.

Fitness teaches you to test failure, to bounce back, to try harder.

I kept a positive mind and decided to immediately bounce back by creating a better channel Gabriel FITNESS KID. And I didn’t start from scratch, i Started BACK with experience and most importantly with an existing fan base on Facebook, Instagram, twitter, musical.ly (all under gabrielfitnesskid name) that was ready to jump back on this new YouTube adventure.

This is the power of communities and of fitness, see the positive side of things and always push harder!
