      This is slightly off topic but also goes with that 10yr old girl who squatted 205lbs for that record. Does any of this lifting affect their growth, putting stress on the spine? I mean a 97lb girl squatting 205lbs +?

        I read another article on her saying she is from Broomfield, Colorado.

        "Abbey started weight lifting three years ago. Her Dad brought her along one morning to Defy Crossfit Gym in Broomfield." -Corey Rose, 9news.com

        Here is the article:

          I was wondering the same thing.

            Broomfield is a northerly suburb of Denver. I haven't heard of the gym.

            I wouldn't feel very comfortable letting my 10 year old squat that much, no. However, I admit to not really knowing if it is a good idea or not. I don't know what impact it can have on the bones, spine, etc..

              I will say that I BELIEVE that squating and doing deads as a teen limited my ht some. There is no way to know for certain but I hit my ht (5'10") at about 16 and that was it. I started squatting heavy at 14b and kept at it through my teens. Our gym had a board for "teen records" and I had it each year for squats (yea, today a gym would be in court it lill tommy pulled a hammy trying for a gym record). There is zero way for me to be certain but looking back I just don't see how putting 3-600 lbs on a developing spine twice a week could NOT effect it.
              Now I've read it argued that squats and deads will help with the development of the spine and done correctly that may very well be true. I would just be real careful about how often there is extremely overload placed on the spine.
              This is just what I WOULD DO.... I would let my kid squat and deads but those exs would be techniques and rep driven 99% of the time. I don't think it would be a problem going low once a month or so... Or doing a meet every so many months....but I wouldn't let them do what I did... Reps in the 2-5 range twice a week and max attempts every week or so.
              Again, no science to back any of that up, just my view.

                Everything that I have seen on younger kids lifting lately has been positive. Most don't feel like its as detrimental to height or growth as it was once thought. However, all articles I've seen have specified normal lifting, in moderate rep ranges and moderate weight, not lifting maximally. The saying when I was young and wanted to get started was that training would stunt your growth. I don't know if it's good for teens or not, but it seems that more kids are training these days, at least by the numbers I've been seeing in the gyms....

                  I know off topic, but moderate loads probably not, but maximal loads that compress the spine I'd be more inclined to say yes than no. But who knows, I think I'm shriking from heavy squatting

                    This could be very true. Alot of times when I go to the chiro and he sets my hips correctly among other things, I can actually be closer to my true height of 6'4, rather than my beat up height of 6'3. I've actually measured myself and this is truly the case....That's why I tell people that I'm 6'3, but 6'4 on a good day....lol

                      Any man legitimately over 6'2" has no right posting in this thread!!! Jk...if your measured ht is 6'3"-6'4" and you tell people 6'3" I bet most are like "no way...your way taller than that!"
