Training Program Suggestions
recently met a young man who after seeing the change in my shape
over the past months asked me if I could introduce him to the gym.
I agreed, but then thought that at 13 years of age, training with
heavy weights could be detrimental to his growth. I'd be grateful
if you could give any well informed opinion - especially any of
you medical people in the group. Og>>
The important thing with a thirteen year old is to make certain
that he feels what you are giving to him is a tough bodybuilder
workout. At no time, should you say this is a beginner's mickey
mouse workout because you are too young. Every workout must have
something for him to really strive for and he must feel like he
is involved in a "real super-duper-soon-to-be-Mr.Galaxy-workout
or he will soon get bored.
year olds are junior high school students here. They can read Shakespeare,
write haikus or fall alseep when you talk to them. If they are challenged,
they are capable of amazing things.
