for a long time, I have l focused credit and thus reinforced the idea by scientific literature in the years 70-80 (yes this idea is almost '' stone Age'' ...) Weineck known for his expertise.

There is Le Chevalier repeating the thesis:
Source: "Why lactic efforts so-called "resistance" are harmful to young people (AUS magazine in the special issue of October 1999, page 42)
These authors assumed that the removal of lactate, and therefore the capacity for recovery, were weaker priori in children.
Today, recent studies are fighting this information ...
They have been the subject of an excellent article with our national expert Sébastien Ratel (conference master, STAPS Clermont Ferrand) in the common bible of EPS for teachers and physical trainer, to get interested have a look in sports section under his "Education physical and Sports ", the famous magazine EPS (number 351 of March/ April).
Yes it is possible to develop anaerobic abilities in children with a double explanation of performance improvement:
first of all, the famous inter and intra muscular coordination that will trigger a better mobilization of motor units and on the other hand an increase in the flow of energy coming from lactic anaerobic.
The authors have shown that two sessions on EPS (classic part of a unit of learning at school) earning out of 7 sessions built on training at intensities between 100 and 130% of the VMA had nothing but positive effects on aerobic performance cross and race at college or school.

Still according to the expert Sébastien Ratel in terms of exercise for children in France and recognized worldwide for the quality of its work, it should be noted I quote:
"... lower muscle damage and less fatigue after intense exercise for children compared to adults."
The explanation is as follows:
"The concentration of plasma creatine kinase (a marker of muscle damage) increases only slightly compared to adults."
