its the mom Posted January 12, 2005 Report Share Posted January 12, 2005 How early do boys start weight training as part of their curriculum? I have heard mixed reviews from teachers. Some say to start early, some caution starting too early because heavy lifting can stunt growth. So far, son is taking a private reformer class, and does push-ups on his own. He is in partnering class, but he is limited in his lifting ability. He is frustrated at times, but I remind him that he is 13, and the other guys are 16 and up. The only other young boy around his age is 15 and is built much bigger. I assume that it is size that we should be looking at, and not age or dance ability. Am I correct? Quote Link to comment
