What’s goin’ on guys? Shane and Ant here with another fightTIPS Quick Tip. So in this video were doing another myth busting episode. We’re talking about are you too young to be lifting weights. but first we gotta get some shout outs to the people who helped donate and create Projects Underdogs! Alright, let’s start off with my man Matthew! Yes, we gotta give a shout out to Saira also give a shout out to Devin. Stephen Orris, my Twitter follower! Pierre, the man! And Christian — thank you guys so much for donating. So the topic at hand now is: are you too young to be lifting weights?
This is a question and I get far too often and I even get from sixteen, seventeen
year old kids that say: “Shane, I heard on too young and too small, I’m not fully developed yet, I shouldn’t be lifting weights, right? It may stunt my growth.” It’s not true. Okay, if you’re lifting incredibly heavy weights, with terrible form, then yeah you may injure something. But no, you’re not going to injure any growth plates in you’re doing high repetition, if you’re doing 12-20 reps of something, if you’re doing bicep curls I mean you’re picking up heavy school bags when you’re six-years-old going to school right? So picking up stuff like that it’s not
gonna hurt you. If you’re exercising good form, If you know how to do your exercises correctly, you should absolutely be lifting weights. you could be 7, 8, 9 years old and that may be a little bit young, you should probably doing things that are a little more entertaining like a sport
or something like that, but if you’re into it and you wanna be lifting at the
age of 11 or 12 or 13, yeah I was doing it and you know I’m 5’8. Ant was doing it, and he’s what? 5’10? 5’10. He’s a little bit taller than me, but I mean no, it’s not going to stunt your growth unless you do those heavy lifts and=you do it with bad form. Maybe avoid the deadlifts until you’re a little bit older, or heavy squats. Something like that. Some other myths we got a bust’em.
