Little Hercules

According to the New York Times, kids who train with weights won't damage their growth plates. They won't end up being shorter as a result, nor will they suffer "lack of testosterone" or experience "a variety of safety issues." In fact,
a major new review just published in Pediatrics, together with a growing body of other scientific reports, suggest that, in fact, weight training can be not only safe for young people, it can also be beneficial, even essential.
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to turn my kids into Giuliano Stroe.
