    Ok, I need more advice. My 14 year old is wanting to start working out with me. I have been on working out for a little over a year now and he is starting to see the results. My question is.... Is 14 too early to start? I know the weight is important. But I hear so many people tell me that 14 is too young. I have allowed him to do some lifting with lite weight. Mostly just the bar, and cable pulls. Now he is wanting a schedule and increase in weight. Has anybody had any experience with starting a new teen out?

    That's about the age I started out. I don't see why it would not be okay. If he can physically handle the increase in weight while maintaining good form then why not? There are no scientific facts stating that lifting weights stunts growth by any means.

    This. As long as form stays strong, I haven't seen a single piece of evidence behind the growth stunting myth. May not be best to approach maximal loads and risk form failure but increasing loads, sure.
