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

    Does he like iced tea?

    You still want to do this?

    [QUOTE=Joe W. Namath;4447000]Weightlifting is fine at 13. Just focus on form so he doesnt injure himself. and have him go light for awhile.[/QUOTE]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.

    [QUOTE=jetswin;4447022]he should not be lifting weights unless he has hair on his nuts...

    let him run all he wants, otherwise pushups and situps should be ok for now[/QUOTE]
    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.

    [QUOTE=shakin318;4447016]LOL, not a phase -- not this kid. This boy's committed to going to Annapolis, and [B]hoping to make their LAX team...everything he's done since he's been 7 years old has been working toward that goal.[/B] I don't know where he gets it...I keep comparing his facial features to mine and eyeing my wife suspiciously.

    [QUOTE=FF2;4447316]It that organized youth team sport?[/QUOTE]

    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".

    Why don't you and granpa just do dueling walkers at dawn and leave the kids out of it?
