I am just watching the NFC Wild card game and DK Metcalf’s record day.
Metcalf is a 6’4 220 lb chiseled wr whose father had him start lifting at the age of 6!! Yes you read that correctly. 6 years old and lifting weights…did it stunt his growth…NO! In fact research shows that 77% of people who lift weights at a young age are the tallest in their family
2. Young athletes who train with weights are hurt much less then kids who don’t lift weights
3. Strength training is safe for kids as long as it is personalized and supervised
4. Strength training wil increase a young athletes mobility
5. Will strength training guarantee you a scholarship or play pro….no but I can assure you if you don’t you will have much less of an opportunity!
Now be like DK Metcalf and squat 100bs at the age of 6!!
