I'm thirteen and I'm lifting weights for a week now but my mom says I should stop because I haven't fully grown and I should wait until I stop growing because my body would not focus on growing but instead it will focus on muscle growth. Is this true?

When done properly, weight training offers numerous health benefits to 13-year-old boys. In fact, the American College of Sports Medicine states that a child can safely participate in weight training as long as they are mature enough to follow directions. Although they may not see significant improvements in muscle mass, 13-year-old boys will develop strength and endurance. To prevent injury, boys should focus closely on exercise technique and an adult should supervise their training..
