    I don't really get what your asking. Is weighing 7 stone at 13, and having a six pack unhealthy? Sounds more like bragging to me

    If you lifted at 14 you'd probably injure yourself

    Your body isn't anywhere near developed enough for you to be building substantial muscle, that's why a lot of gyms don't allow under-16s in.
    I'd have thought it would have more to do with people not wanting a load of 'yoofs' running around the gym getting in the way and going somewhere else where kids don't go.

    You'd only injure yourself if your form was bad, if you make sure your form is perfect then lifting's fine and you'll get stronger, in fact IF you do it right you can build a lot of muscle during puberty with the high testosterone levels, big IF though because if you do it wrong you can potentially damage yourself and stunt growth, that's if you lift very heavy with terrible form.

    Well I was just thinking he wouldn't be able to lift much more than the bar itself :lol:

    and partially how it might impact him if he put on too much muscle and it affected his bone growth

    as long as you don't do weights at such a young age cause it can sometimes stunt your growth.
    but if I was still 13 (im 16 btw just in case u think im older) I would find that hot

    It's not unhealthy, just make sure you're eating enough. At 13 that means pretty much everything in your house.

    Also, stay off the weights until you are at least in year 11. If you stick with doing sport that will be enough.

    Not at all. 90% of 13-14 year old males are skinny, light and weak as ****. This is because nine times out of ten you are getting to the stage where you will rapidly grow into your adult size. This takes a tremendous amount of energy. This means that you need to eat a heck of a lot and get lots of sleep and this is why so many teenagers your age follow the seafood diet (you see food, you eat it) yet are still skinny as hell.

    Just keep active, eat a lot and get the sleep you need and you will be fine.

    lol no I'm not bragging, i was wondering if i need to bulk up, as people say 100lbs for someone who is about 160cm and nearly 14 is too light, but i have six pack, i was confused.

    lol im not trying to show off, so I don't why you are saying " don't count" even more confused now lol, surely only skinny people like me have a six pack because there has to be less fat for the muscle to visible?! Ah, you have made me even more confused, thanks for your input anyway.

    Unfortunately I doubt you have a six pack. You really need to work your core for that. You're probably just really skinny like I was, I played loads of football and kayaked but I was skinny and didn't have a six pack (Though it looked like it). You'll get a six pack if you do gymnastics or lift int he gym etc. Your weight is fine, but it depends on your build! I've got a mate who is pretty heavy, but I have never seen someone with such a big structure (he isn't fat he's muscular and big framed).
