And I think she gets some say so on the 'skinny' bit. Sage is a heavy WOD no matter how you slice her.

I previewed one round of John and Cody's Sage in 4:06. Still trying to catch up on the WOD's and then find time to go five rounds.

sage's time was 19:02 for the 3 rounds---sorry i forgot to post. sage's idols are nichole, lani, annie, chem girl, and eva....she likes how hard core and in shape they all are. after the nats i am sure sage will want to do more of the crossfit workouts.

Mike, this reminds me of a question that I've been meaning to ask of someone knowledgeable.

I've always heard that heavy resistance training was a bad idea for teens and especially for preadolescents. I gather it has to do with effects on bone development and related issues. Yet I gather that Sage has been training since she was at least 10 or so, and she's...14 now?

Obviously you don't think it's dangerous or you wouldn't let her do it. So I wonder what you think of that conventional wisdom - where it came from, how to get around it, etc?

heavy is relative. kids use to run, jump and throw their bodies around playgrounds!!! jungle gyms!! i started my kids early in life with pvc pipe ensuring proper technique....sage as i have said many times use to do a snatch, run and play with the dog....over and over...now she plays multiple sports and enjoys lifting...no harm done!!

My guess is that the heavy resistance is with improper form, or specific lifts. Eg, in gymnastics it's a bad idea to work iron crosses too young because it can do damage to the sternum and potentially the elboes. Though working maltese drills is ok. Just know your sport and find out what proper progressions are, and any special cases with developing/growing kids.

the warnings that I always heard from physicians were specifically about weightlifting. I'm not quite sure what the issues are supposed to be, since I started lifting at about 15 and it did me no harm.

This article seems to cover the issues pretty well from both sides...

I'd be interested in thoughts from the experts here on this.
