Date:7/16/2014

New Orleans, LA Safe and Effective Exercise for Overweight Youth by Melinda Sothern, PhD, Director of Behavioral & Community Health Sciences and Professor of Research at the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Public Health, provides exercise recommendations and guidelines specifically designed for overweight youth. The book addresses the challenges specific to overweight and obese youth including hypertension, asthma, type 2 diabetes, weakened muscles, joint vulnerability and heightened injury risk to assist the health care provider in selecting safe and effective exercises for these children.

"In addition to physiologic, metabolic and biomechanical differences, children who suffer from overweight and obesity face greater psychological challenges when engaging in physical activity with leaner children," says Dr. Sothern, who is also a clinical exercise physiologist.

The book, based upon Dr. Sothern's decades of scientific research and clinical experience, is a best practices model for implementing clinical and recreational-based physical activity interventions. It provides recommendations for type, intensity, duration and frequency of exercise for the management of childhood obesity. It includes 40 lesson plans based on age, gender, medical condition and level of obesity. There are guidelines for aerobic, strength and flexibility training as well as motivational tools, tracking techniques, outcome measurements. Printable forms can be used in clinical practice or community and field settings. CRC Press published Safe and Effective Exercise for Overweight Youth.
