Ages to do Sports.png

There’s much debate as to the appropriate age for young children to begin lifting weights. Most agree that it’s best to allow your young child to fully develop before weight training. Younger lifters should also avoid certain exercises to reduce injury risk.

In general, weight lifting is not recommended for children younger than fourteen years of age.  At this time, kids can be exposed to weight lifting through other athletic competition or on their own. The benefits of weight training can be enjoyed throughout adolescence and into adulthood. However, weight lifting can be very dangerous. It’s very important to continually assess your strengths and abilities before each workout, and it’s always a good idea to train with a spotter.
