There is no evidence to support stunted growth, but he will definitely suffer issues at the joints.

I'm going to make sure my kids are physically active, but I wouldn't let them touch exercises like that until high school.

Push-ups and running is the best thing for a kid. You will only see minimal muscle gains at that young age, so it is better to teach form than lifting heavy.

haha, it's just painted wood. I wouldn't worry about his joints, he has pretty good form!

He's mostly imitating his dad. Psycho grunting and all...

Had a short friend who was an excellent gymnast until he hurt his neck in 9th grade. Everyone else had grown, dude stayed small. After that injury my man shot up like a weed.

So what your saying is that your friend hit a growth spurt between 13-15 years old? Which by the way is the typical age that guys will hit another growth spurt.

What do you think kids are doing when they bend down to pick up their toys or objects from the floor?

This seems totally unsafe for all kids to do.

No. Dude was beyond small. Like 4th grade small. I'm suggesting some things do in fact stunt ones growth.

I cannot imagine a kid this young lifting weights is good.

Post work out gerber apple sauce ftw.

Why do you say he'll have joint issues? The things I did as a young child were way worse than lifting and my joints are fine, except for the injuries I've sustained as an adult.

If lifting is viewed as harsh on the body, perhaps I should post pictures of the scars on my leg from compartment syndrome - an injury common among runners.

Perhaps he finally started getting adequate nutrition post-injury. A lot of gymnasts are encouraged to stay small, so they become malnutritioned. Or maybe he had some other sort of physical issue that was unknowingly resovled after he broke his neck (it's not far from the pituitary).

Seeing causation between working a young muscle and stunting ones growth seems like a pretty far stretch for me.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

People tend to loosen up during exercises like squats and deadlifts. The key is to keep your body tight and in form during the whole exercise, from when the weight goes down/up up/down.

I know people who blew out their knees over time because they put all their strength into squats only as the weight would be pushed up. Controlled fashion during the negative and positive parts of a rep are key. You'd be surprised how many people just throw weight up and down and end up hurting themselves. As long as the kid keeps form, he should have no problems. The exercise itself shouldn't give him joint issues if he does them correctly.

Most injuries from running are due to improper form and harsh steps that send shocks throughout the body.

I'm getting into barefoot running, and once I perfect my running form barefoot and get used to it... I can transition over to shoes, I'll probably get Vibram Fivefingers.

My guess is that any parent that would teach a toddler to deadlift is probably pretty knowledgeable on proper form. Just my thought on it though. It's a pretty niche sport.

And Vibrams

And Vibrams

Do you like them? I love mine.

I have this 8.5 mile loop that I run about 5 - 8 times per summer. Every time I have ever run it in regular shoes by the end my shins and knees are sore. I ran it for the first time last fall in my vibrams. The only thing that hurt was the bottom of my feet and the more time I spend in them that becomes less of an issue. Really a revolutionary product in my opinion.

"Like" and "love" barely describe how I feel about these shoes. I've had issues with my legs for about 6 or 7 years, and had periodic pain even after surgery. Since I started working out primarily in Vibrams I have not had a flare up of pain at all. Wearing regular running shoes elevates the heel, which puts pressure on a part of my leg that's prone to pain. Having my heel level with my toes has done wonders for me. On top of that, they are awesome to do legs in and make it much easier to push with your heels. Doing deadlifts and rows feels much more stable now, too (after a little learning period, of course).

They're great for driving manual in, too. You can wiggle your toe over to blip the gas.

I currently just have my black/gray KSOs, but I plan on buying a pair of Classics soon and maybe some Komodos once they get them back in stock.
