We were always told not to lift at an early age.  Interesting to know where that thinking came from...

"Bottom line is that weightlifting (RT) is safe and effective for children and adolescence with the provisos that the exercises are supervised by qualified persons, with safe equipment and environment. The myth of RT stunting growth in children has been proven to be wrong, even though it persists in many aspects of the exercised community, including pediatricians."
