    No problem. We'll provide the transpo. We'll even throw in the refreshments.

    Does he like iced tea?

    Battery acid straight up, with a bowl of nails.

    You still want to do this?

    POTY

    If he wants to be a good athlete, then lots of reps with light weights. The level of strength a 13 yo can develop through consistent reps of manageable weight is formidable. All that raw power will be available for skill training. I've seen it go the other way and it sucks - kids that bulk up for High School football have obese lives waiting for them.

    let him run all he wants, otherwise pushups and situps should be ok for now
    Just add some bench press, some flys, and a set of press just to get the muscles growing together, symmetrically. That type of stuff. It definitely gets the testosterone going.

I don't know where he gets it...I keep comparing his facial features to mine and eyeing my wife suspiciously.

    Boom, FF2 nailed it. That's just some turble parenting, Shakin.






    Like others have said, make a point of form over weight and completely dissuade his wanting to "max-out".
