Re: Need expert opinion on kids and squatting.
[quote=Ben Joven;1261611]Great great advice...never heard of Osgood–Schlatter disease will definitely be researching this.
I dealt with Osgood-Schlatter as an adolencent and it haunted me into adulthood. I eventually required surgery to try and repair some of the damage...I grew nearly 4-6" over an 8 month period and my football coaches never cautioned me about lifting heavy. I played defensive end and lived by squats and power cleans.....
Every kid is different, but I'd advise drilling mechanics, lift light to moderate and progress as needed.
