Strength training is defined as principle of progressive overload to force the body to adapt to producing or resetting heavier weight. Now when is the right age to start lifting weights, when will I start to see progress, could overdoing my muscles hurt me? All these questions are common among parents.
When you are mostly done maturing, is the correct time to start the process or lifting weights. Most kids hit puppetry between the ages of 10 and 14; many suggest that you do not start lifting until the age of 14. Why, because it may affect your growth in many different ways. It could stunt your growth, it could make you bigger but for some you wouldn’t change at all, it is different for every kid.
Now I think it is positive for kids to lift after the appropriate age simply because for sports you need to be strong and staying strong keeps you’re healthy. Even if you are not in sports it is still a good thing to lift 1) it makes you feel more confident about yourself 2) you will benefit from lifting more than you would if you did not lift.
Now once you start lifting there is a point where you should stop, that point is when you can’t even lift your hands above your head and you can’t touch your toes. All that muscle will go away and you will be left with stretched skin and it does not look good, trust me. You might say you will keep that muscle up but I doubt that at the age of 60 you will still be reaping out 400 lbs. Now say one was just to stay fit, they could because the muscles may be smaller but are strong, these muscles are easier to keep up.
All in all you should not start lifting until the age of 14 at least, just for precursory means. Lift when your body is ready, do not overdo it, it can be very dangerous for your health. But always stay active eat right and you will have a nice body and live longer, go to some of these sights and read for yourself.
