I was wondering what size and/or weight should a 12 year old use with the body bar for training?

What is a body bar? The Bodyblade, which comes in a professional and standard version, was used in the Cubs organization. The standard is 4 ft., professional model is 5 ft. The length determines the difficulty of the Bodyblade. The standard, which is the easiest of the two, is sufficient – especially for a 12-year-old.

If the body bar is different than the Bodyblade, post it here.
