State-wide dissemination of the Resistance Training for Teens program: An evaluation guided by the RE-AIM framework

      Introduction: The health benefits of muscular fitness for youth are compelling. Current guidelines recommend young people (5-17 years) engage in muscle-strengthening activities (e.g., resistance training [RT]) on at least three days per week.

However, few school-based physical activity interventions have focused on RT, possibly due to reported barriers to delivery in schools.
