    Help!

    Hello, I have a 13 year old daughter who would like start lifting weights. However, I do not know what sort of weight lifting exercises she should do, how many repitions she should do, how often she should lift weights, how long she should lift weights for at a time, what size weights she should use, and etc. Please help!

    Try using the search function. There have been a couple of threads about training girls (women). If you don't find what you're looking for, come back and ask.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Find someone competent in your area to help her/you out. We could prescribe things, but if you yourself cannot teach her properly, she's probably not going to benefit that much and could, at very least, end up with a lot of bad habits and, at worst, injured..

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    13???? At that age especially with females, body weight exercises are great!! It really helps with the compound form later!

    Push-ups, Body weight squats, pistols (one legged squats), hand stand push ups, dips, pull ups, chin ups, plank work, step ups,

    Being a teenage girl (stereotyping!) she will get tired of it fast so you might even want to incorporate some machine workto keep it new and interesting. I will recieve hell about that from people on this forum...

    Check out crossfit.com. They have some amazing women atheletes that may inspire her, as well as routines, WOD's and video clips for reference and can probably answer more questions than us.

    stumptuous.com also!
