Cardiorespiratory exercise training in children

Clin Sports Med. 1986 Jul;5(3):493-514.


Definitive statements concerning the cardiorespiratory effects of exercise training in children cannot be made. Few carefully controlled and well-defined exercise training studies including important cardiorespiratory variables have been conducted. Generally, it appears that the response to training in pubescent and postpubescent children is not different from what is observed in adults.
