Hi Alex - It's not a good idea for a boy of your age to lift weights. The reason for this is that your bones are growing rapidly during puberty, and lifting weights can prevent the bones from growing correctly. It is advisable to wait until at least 16 before weight training. I believe it is OK to use your own body to train - e.g. press ups, sit-ups etc. Just give the weights a miss for a couple of years. Regards, John.

Wow, that answer is dead wrong. NUMEROUS studies have shown that lifting weights at ages under 16 is not at all harmful and will not prevent your bones from growing correctly. Certainly anyone that age should be under adult supervision when lifting (especially free weights).

Please don't keep spreading the myth about weight training and kids.

WEIGHT LIFTING DOES NOT STUNT GROWTH!!!!

Research has actually shown that weight lifting isn't just not harmful but actually good for bone growth and bone strength. This is the general consensus based on research in the medical community, and anything else is nothing more than a myth that's outlived its time. 

Side effects of weight training can become an issue where incorrect techniques are used, where you use too much weight, where you don't take adequate breaks, and most definitely in those who take steroids. If you want to lift weights safely, you definitely need supervision and training on correct techniques. If you have that, then have fun!

hi james, I am also 13 years old and i do flat water canoeing and at the moment i am 2nd best in the country. I have been doing weights for around a year now and it has not affected my health only my muscles getting bigger but apart from that it has been fine. If u are going to train hard then it will hurt for a while for me it takes about 2 hours until the muscle pain goes away beacuse i am used to it my advice carry on and be the best you can be.

i started working out at about your age, im 16 now and have found that because your using such light weights it shouldnt effect your body in a bad way, although you might want to try getting some ten or if you can eleven pound dumbells and doing about 6-8 reps rather than 100 because if you want to get bigger try heavier weight and fewer reps, the less your muscles rip the faster they heal and have time to rip again. but other then that just try not to do any heavy exercises that will put pressure on your joints and back, atleast not till your at a good age :-D

Weight lifting/physical fitness WILL NOT, CAN NOT, DOES NOT stunt your growth!!!! There are 3 factors which stunt growth: Malnutrition, a disease, and steroids. Your height is predetermined as soon as you are born. So even if you suffer a spine injury the bones will still grow to the height they were supposed to. The whole notion of growth being stunted by heavy lifting is a myth. You'd have to lift massive amounts of weight to tighten your muscles to the point where the growth would be stopped or slowed. Just remember the golden rule for teens, do not lift any weight you can't do for at least 5 reps. im 14 bro
:-D

I think it will probably affect your growth later. It is better you consult a gym instructor or trainer. You should increase your weight lifting slowly. Don't go for 100 reps in the start, take proper advice from professional trainers.
All the best!!! :-)

If you do pushups your lifting with your arm strength and that also is your body weight up and down, it also tightens up the stomach muscles and helps the back also done the correct way, most kids 13 go on their own and approach it with good intentions but bad results. Try to use restrictive training, pushups, situps, tennis ball squezing, start slow,and build yor body slow, correct food and hydration is a major factor,and rest the body. if you switch from the top part of your body one day to the lower you will be alright. only your growth plate will cause changes in your body, such as if you were to break your femur at your age then yes a doctor would keep an eye on the progress of the healing stage. try this first, see after a while if it is working and if it does then down road you can start to add weights slow. remember you want to feel good about your self, as in eveything you do in life, school, work, family, sports exercise etc. it takes full motivation and commitment, good luck, and do not quit, look at like this, failure is not an option, it will not happen overnight. I did 4 years in Marine Corp, feel good about your self,and you will see the confidence follow!!"Semper Fi Brother".
