(I guess this goes in this forum??)
OK, now both my kids (ages 13 and 17) want to start lifting. I've trained a fair number of athletes in their late teens and early 20's so the older son does not present much of an issue.
I have never trained anyone as young as my youngest. Are there any good programs, caveats, bits of advice etc. to give? He's a pretty strong kid already and adult sized ( 5' 8" now and will probably top 6' 4" if his brother is any indication).
My concerns are amount of loading on growing bones and joints, as well as programs that will keep up his interest. If he sticks with training regularly -- and he might just end up as a training partner like my oldest is getting to be -- then this would be really great. But he is 13.
Thanks in Advance!
