      Study: young boys take extreme measures for muscular bodies

      A new study reveals a startling trend among boys: taking extreme measures to become muscular.

      In fact, the journal Pediatrics, finds that two-thirds of young boys are working out to achieve a{}

      muscular build, more than 30 percent drink protein shakes and nearly six percent take steroids.

      The study surveyed middle school and high-school aged boys in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

      On Thursday's "Focus @ 4," local fitness experts and doctors will talk about the manifestations

      of the trend locally, as well as proper steps parents can take to make sure their children get fit in healthy

      ways.
