I think I Would be Afraid if my Kid was this Strong

One of our readers recently sent me this video. We talk all the time about true power and strength being your ability to control your own body. The boy in this video is capable of doing extremely advanced power moves at a very young age. For many years there has been debates about how old a kid needs to be before they begin to strength train. I think more specifically the key is when is it appropriate to do resistance training. Strength training should be done and is done from our infancy.

I have always been a fan of kids doing sports such as gymnastics to help build there total body strength. I am much more of a fan of kids doing the old school actions of tree climbing and fence scaling but that simply does not happen as much as it used to in suburbia.

Here is the video, you will be amazed by this kid’s strength. Oh I forgot to mention, He is only 5!

    That kid has some freakish strength! I wonder what the negative side affects of him strength training, at such a young age, will be for him in the future?

"My body has not reacted well with working a desk job.  I am only 25, but have been having a lot of pain that has built up over the past 6 months...The cubicle workouts have truly helped, I cant even begin to tell you...so much better! Thanks Scott, love the routines!" Brandon
