Pre-pubescent kids shouldn’t be lifting heavy weights. The National Strength and Conditioning Association recommends that they use lighter weights for higher reps. The kettlebell is the perfect tool for this job. It gives your child the opportunity to learn how to move his body and then load that movement to get stronger, while providing the safest opportunity to make mistakes, which are inherent and necessary to the learning process.
Simple kettlebell exercises such as the Swing, the Get Up and the Goblet Squat prepare the adolescent’s joints — hips, shoulders, and knees, for the demands of any sport and teaches your young athlete how to move under different conditions that he’ll find the athletic arena — speed and resistance (think tackling). https://bit.ly/2GZstp4
