Age to start lifting weights


#1

What is a good age to start lifting weights? My son is 10 and we have a coach that wants to lift starting at 10 and 11. I think that is way to soon

im not a pitching coach, but I am a parent. IMO 10 and/or 11 is too young to be in the gym lifting weights. there MUST be another strength & conditioning regimen that doesn’t include weight lifting. Good for you for seeking alternatives!

Please read Dr. Avery Faigenbaum’s work at strongkid.com. You will learn quite a bit about safe weightlifting for kids.
