My little cousin, who is 13-14 years old, wants to start working out. His father was gonna help him out, but then was like 'why don't you ask your cousin, he knows his shiat', or something like that. Anyway, he lives around the block, so I can train him or at least show him the exercises in my gym.
Ok here's the way it looks. He is a pretty big boy. He is already taller than me and weighs about 165. He has been in sports for a few years, playing baseball, football and now wrestling. He isn't like freaky genetically muscular, he just seems to be a big boy. Like a lineman in football build.
Any suggestions on what I should show him? I was thinking of a basic full body routine. Start off real light, teaching him technique, then start to increase weight. You think I should teach him squats and deads? Or stick to more basic off the bat? Basically, I don't want to lead him the wrong way, especially because he is my cousin and my Uncle, being a cop, has a gun! hehe
Any suggestions, especially from you PT's, like mac, would be appreciated. Thanks.
