Today, parents are very worried about their children's height. Once the child's height development does not reach the ideal standard, they will start to think of various ways to make the child grow taller. In this regard, skipping rope can help children grow taller, which has become the consensus of many parents, and they also feel that exercise is most beneficial to children's health.
In various sports, skipping rope has become the first choice for many parents to their children. First, it occupies a small area and is limited by the site. Secondly, the cost is low, and a skipping rope can start exercising anytime, anywhere. Skipping rope is undoubtedly the best way for parents to supervise children's sports, but will children who insist on skipping rope grow taller for a long time?
From a scientific point of view, skipping rope is indeed helpful for the growth of children's height, mainly because the children's legs will continue to bounce during the process of skipping rope. Under the full stimulation of this exercise, the osteocytes on the epiphyseal line of the leg joints begin to calcify and proliferate, thereby achieving the purpose of stimulating height development.
In theory and many practical experiments, we can verify that skipping rope helps to grow taller. However, many parents find that their children skip rope every day, but their height development is not as effective as they think. Some children skip rope for a long time, but there is no obvious change in height development, still maintain the previous level of growth, and even have many destructive problems.
Regarding the news of children's jumping rope injuries, it was previously reported that a mother skipped 3,000 children every day in order to make her 12-year-old daughter grow taller. It turned out that the child's own weight was 120 pounds. The child's knee is the first to develop problems with this high-load exercise, and he feels pain even after walking.
At first, the parents didn’t care, but later came to the hospital for examination, only to find out that due to long-term exercise load and wear and tear, the child has suffered from tibial tuberosity epiphysis, the child’s height has not started to grow taller, and the knee joint seems to have problems, it’s not worth it lose.
Therefore, in the process of children skipping rope, in order to better stimulate their height development and ensure their physical safety, the following issues should be paid attention to when supervising children skipping rope:
1. Pay attention to the strength of your child's skipping rope: If you want to grow taller and be beneficial to your health, an important premise is that the strength must be in line with your physical condition. Excessive intensity will lead to physical exhaustion and serious physical injury. Although the intensity can be gradually adapted and increased, do not bear high load, which will easily cause injury to the child.
2. Pay attention to the completion of the rope skipping action of children: Many children often deal with skipping rope casually in order to complete the tasks assigned by their parents. The amplitude is too small and the jump height is too low, resulting in a low degree of completion. This low-quality jump rope exercise, even if the prescribed amount is completed, will not achieve the desired stimulation increase effect.
3. Pay attention to the norms of children's rope skipping: Correct and standardized rope skipping is the premise of ensuring quality and safety. There are several points to pay attention to, such as hanging both hands on the crotch, shaking the rope with wrist force; skipping rope, do not use the heel, it is easy to hurt Ankle and spine. Keep your knees slightly bent to slow the impact on the ground.
4. Pay attention to the choice of floor and shoes: When jumping rope, in addition to the safety rules, the choice of floor and shoes is also very important. Children must choose a flat ground when skipping rope, so that it is not easy to stand unsteadily and fall in the middle, but soft and comfortable shoes with shock resistance can relieve many joint injuries.
Important note: The bouncing exercise in skipping rope can stimulate the growth and accumulation of bones in children, but incorrect skipping exercise can not bring about the effect of height growth, and even bring harm to children's health. Therefore, if the child wants to pass the jump rope height, he needs to pay attention to his strength, pay attention to the completion of the action and the standard action, and choose a good bottom edge and sports shoes with anti-vibration function.
