    Workout for a 12 Year old?

    My younger cousin is getting interested in weightlifting just because he sees how big that I have gotten.

    I've heard a lot about lifting too early and possibly causing injury, should I have him stick to body weight exercises or is he old enough to be using weights.

    Thanks kneegrows

    Strength training would be beneficial

    Just make sure to spot him at all times and correct his form.

    I will not affect him as long as he does it w/ a good form.

    He does have enough to make some strength gains.

    Just focus him on pure strength training, when he's around 13 or 14 get him on a size program.

    disregard this

    have him hit the core lifts

    squat
    bench
    clean

    then some pullups, dips, and other bodyweight exercises

    make sure his form is good, if he cant do it with good form then lower the weight

    I'd say get him doing a lot of body weight stuff above all. Push ups, air squats, pistol squats, hand stand push ups, plants etc. For a 12 yr old, that's more than sufficient.

    My advice would be get him doing the main excersises, always relatively light weight so he can get a good headstart when he's 14 and can start going at it harder?

    I noticed that when i went from body weight stuff to free weights (i was 12) that they were way harder to lift than i had thought, i had been doing minute planks and side planks (both sides) plus 120 sit ups every night. I'm not sure if the every night thing was good or bad or whatnot but i pushed through how different it was but if i did it again i would go with the weighted vests to make the body weight stuff harder so that when your ready for the free weights you can nail them in a day.
