1Hey Coach,
I'm having this dilemma of whether or not to play sports. I'm having this problem cuz I'm only 13, weigh 139 pounds, am 5'6" and have huge breasts which are 38B in size. When I run, I feel so ashamed of my bouncing boobs, even though I run faster than the other girls. I know I can do it but I don't have the self-esteem to dedicate myself for school competition. Can you help me?

Hey minami92

Going through puberty can be a difficult time. Your body, mind and emotions go through lots of different changes - and sometimes all these changes can make participating in sports awkward and frustrating. But these changes shouldn't be something that you should be ashamed of and they shouldn't stop you from running or playing other sports.

You can help solve the problem of your "bouncing boobs" by wearing a sports bra. When you're going through puberty, your breast tissue is very delicate and it should be protected during high impact exercise. A good sports bra will give you more support and it'll also stop your breasts from moving during athletic activity, so you won't feel as self-consious and can focus on running or whatever other sport you play. You can buy a sports bra at most sporting goods stores (your mom, older sister or a friend might be able to help you buy it).

Being active and exercising is good for your health and being part of a school team can make you feel better about yourself and build up your self-esteem. Many girls your age have concerns about their body and how others view it - but don't let it be something that discourages you from playing sports.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
