training my 12y/o cousin..help/suggestions
My little cousin is 12, he REALLY looks up to me and kinda mimmicks everything i do, froom t the time he was young, i got my ear peirced he did...i used to wear baggy clothes he did, i changed to more of a laid back/jock clothes he did..i just shaved my head last month and he did...anyway here's the thing he sees me getting big and now he really wants to start going to the gym with me (he doesnt get out of the house much) so i wanna take him... Do you think this would be ok for a kid routine...just 3 days a week and everyday the same workout for him
mon- squat, deadlift, benchpress, and powercleans
i'll prob keep his reps between 12-15..no isolation exercises and on all excerises 3 sets plus one warm up..how does this look? and is this even a good idea? considering he's probably no where near growing? sorry i know long annoying and not all neccesary info but i wanted to paint the picture for you

WOW... i'm not sure anyone can handle squatting, benching, deadlifting, and cleans 3x a week... especially a 12 year old... I would suggest 1 body part per week... the rep range looks good and basic compound movements are a good idea... I would probably start him off on simple machines at first to build some conditioning... just my .02

thanx guys this is the stuff i was looking for, i figyured just basic compound movements with light weight, but i guess when you put it that way it does sound better

Just started helping out my 12 yr old, Basic movements, very light weight, and have him concentrate on form, that will keep him from injurying himself down the road.

yeah wait til his balls drop to start the heavy training. just light training for now...dont want any early injuries.
