: To all,
: Hello...I have a 13yr old son who is a competitive soccer player. I am interested in starting him on a strength and speed workout of some type. He is currently going thru a growth spirt--about 5'7 110 lbs(thin and lean). I am consulting a personal trainer,but am open to any realistic suggestions. His soccer coaches as well as pediatrician say it's ok to start at this point. Appreciate your time. Thanks, TomR......PS, any thoughts on protein powders/creatine for 13yr old?
hold off on those powders and creatine! You sound like you're a healthy kind of guy,
so my advice is check on your daily caloric intake. See if it's appropriate to add more
calories to your diet - doing so may help you gain the weight you want without resorting
to "weight gain" powders and drugs.
