So this year I'm a freshman at my highschool. I've loved lifting (even though I didn't take it too seriously untill about a year ago) and just about any other kind of exercise since I was about 11. I'm looking forward to highschool because I know that they have a much better lifting room and equipment, and one of my problems with lifting is that it always seems like I'm short on time in the afternoon, so I think that now I can get it done at school. But guess what? Apparently, for no reason at all, freshmen can't take a weights class. But I guess if you intend on playing football your sophomore year you get to take a weights class for second semester. But if you don't then you can't. Now tell me if you see the flaws in my train of thought but I don't see how that makes any sense.
It's not about safety precautions because freshman aren't any worse than sophomores or the upper-classmen. And I can garuntee you that I'd be a lot safer doing it than most kids in my school would be. But if that is their reasoning behind it then their just a bunch of arrogant pricks that are too lazy to think things out.
And like I mentioned before, I don't have time to play sports because I'm busy afterschool untill about 8PM most days. So playing football isn't an option (even though I can kick some serious ass as a lineman).
Anyone have any light to shed on the issue?
