"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Interesting article Tony. My children enjoy training and it certainly makes them stronger. My 7 year old daughter can do several chin ups.
I started doing chins and press ups when I was about 7. I saw a small amount of hypertrophy as well as strength increases.
Weight training is great for kids, as long as they are taught correct form and resistance progression is appropriate.
I've recently started my 10 year old nephew on a program of bodyweight squats, chin ups and push ups which he's been doing consistently and improving on. If he sticks with it he'll be getting a barbell set for his birthday.
Our 5 year old also does squats, push ups, bridges and occasionally assisted chin ups, but nothing too structured.
