my 2 year old son loves to pick up the 10lb medicine ball i have that looks like a basketball. he picked it up a few times & he was really straining to pick it up. my lady says he could get a hernia from lifting it so i put it away to be safe. gonna ask the doctor on the next visit, but i was wondering what you guys think?
He shouldn't get a hernia from that. I remember trying to lift things that were way too heavy for me all the time when I was a tyke. Also, the damaged growth plates thing is a myth.

Eugene, I would disagree but he is trying. It's not horrible, like gymnastics instruction in Crossfit.
