    good age to start lifting?

    My bro is 15 and he wants to come to the gym with me but im not sure how healthy it is for him.

    i dont think he has gone through puberty and hes still growing.

    any advice?

    id say 15 is a ripe age to begin lifting. just make sure to keep it light for awhile and get him a good diet plan.

    Lifting at 15 is fine; however, I would prioritize sports and activities that develop skill and coordination.

    that depends on his goals.
    If he want to be a Body builder, powerlifter etc. Then i would concentrate on the gym
