How early can kids start lifting weights? 11-12 is perfect as long as you're smart about it. We use a box to help with depth and heel raise to make the movement easier. Bench press is easier than push ups since the weight is considerably lighter and all boys want to bench.
There's a lot of other specific modifications we make so young athletes the basics so they can begin getting stronger and developing their athletic abilities.
I'll be posting all week the different training methods and modifications we use for young athletes. This doesn't mean we only use these with middle school athletes, if a high school or college athlete comes in with no experience this is where we start.
Happy 1st Mother's Day! Jacob is truly lucky to have you as his mama.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom who made me into the man I am today.

Last week was SMAC 7 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! I've been a little distracted welcoming my little man into the world.
Thank you to everyone who has pushed the sled over these 7 years.
Opening SMAC was my 2nd best idea (proposing to @ctwills#1)#SMACfamily#grateful
