Yes, this is old enough. Lifting will not stunt your growth as the myth grows. Just make sure you do it correctly, and get supervision at first.

Should a 15-year-old girl lift weights?

Of course a 15 year old girl should lift weights! If you are not very athletic, then I suggest you start out with REALLY LIGHT WEIGHTS. Test a light weight, see if you can lift it at least 10 to 15 times. If it's too easy, move up. Too hard, go down. You'll work your way up. And if your worried about bulking up, don't be. It's physically impossible for that to happen without steroids. You will be able to lift the same amount as boys, but your muscles will take up less space. Actually, if you lift weights, you will actually have a really hot body, and still look like you can kick somebody's butt. So, yeah. Lift weights.

How much weight can a 13 year old boy lift?

Can teenagers lift weights?

A teenager CAN lift weights of 7 kilograms MAXIMUM. If a teenager lifts heavier weights, it may affect their growth. For example, my cousin has 13 years old, she's a girl, and lifts weights of 6kilograms each.... so yeah, it's not really affective in that case. But if a teenager (13-16 years old) lifts MORE than that, it will affect they're growth. Plus, I recommend that the minimum age of lifting heavier weights is when they are 17 years old or older. Especially boys, that always want to be like, stronger and good-looking when they're lifting weights. :) Hope this helps!

How much should a 16 year old lift?

There are too many variables to answer this accurately. How much you lift depends on your body type, gender and activity level. Start with weights that feel heavy to you, but you feel that you can lift without too much struggle. The weights should be difficult for you to lift, but remember: more reps are better than more weight. If you want to work your way up to heavier weights, start out pushing yourself to lift a moderate weight many times.

How many pounds should a 14 year old be able to lift?
