Why the fuck are 13-15 year old kids squatting and deadlifting again? This is TERRIBLE advice. I train a lot of young athletes, this isn't warranted. If they are a bit heavier, they can benefit much more from bodyweight exercises. Start bilateral, then move to unilateral. If it is a group, so a circuit and include fun exercises to keep their attention.
As for food, bitchslap their parents and take them shopping. Kids don't care, they eat what's in front of them.[/quote]
Why do you feel that 13-15 year olds should not be squatting and deadlifting? Most people have mentioned to keep in fun activities, and I must agree. However, if you are in a weight room, you should be doing those two movements. I also agree with your nutrition assessment. But I think you might be underestimating kids at that age. 15 was when I started taking a real interest in the gym and what I ate, and I think more kids could benefit from that exposure.
Squatting and deadlifting comment - Risk vs. Reward. That's what it always comes down to. Those two lifts take a while to learn, especially like bbb said, when they are uncooridinated kids. You are telling me that in a group setting, you would teach these lifts?
Show me one of those kids that can do 8 (just throwing a number out there) consecutive pistols on each leg, then you can make decisions like that. Body weight exercises are always a better option.
What are these kids training for again?
