Working out at 15

I have been working out, doing normal WODs ( not crossfit kids) for three months now. I just turned 15 on the twelfth this month. I take pride in pushing myself, like doing an 80-pound Fran, deadlifting 250lbs, getting my first pullup, etc. I have felt good so far, but have recently begun to wonder: is this safe? What kind of schedule is recommended? How hard should I push myself?

It can't be NEARLY as bad for you as obesity, diabetes, heart failure, hyperlipidemia, and early death...

Re: Working out at 15

I say as long as your form is good, there shouldn't be a problem.

Post up some videos of your deadlift form, thrusters, etc in the critique forum so others can see how you look on the exercises. If you don't have the proper form, you will possibly hurt yourself. Otherwise, it's great that you are working out. If you keep at it, at 18 you'll be a beast.
