Hey guys I have a different question. I know it has been discussed about how young is safe to start weight training, and typically early teens seems to be the consensus to start any type of supervised weight training. My question is this though. My nephew is 7 and just started pee-wee football. He is kind of small, I guess most 7 year olds are. He plays rec basketball, finished t-ball and is starting football. Does anyone know if there would be anything dangerous about having him start a push up, sit up, pull up regiment, maybe twice a week. He is very active and playing football is going to require some upper body strength. Also basketball, a little more strength for shooting would help. I'm just curious, i haven't mentioned it to him or anything yet. Just looking to satisfy my curiosity. BTW, my brother, his step dad, isn't in very good shape. So I thought if it isn't going to be detrimental to him, maybe my brother can help him and benefit at the same time.
Thanks for the responses.
