Are Children Today Losing Muscular Fitness?

Amid declines in measures of muscular fitness among youths, the American Academy of Pediatrics has revised its stand on resistance training for youths. We find out from consultant orthopaedic surgeon Dr Rajesh Singh if this applies to Malaysian children, and whether our school PE programmes are up to the task.
