knee pains and weightlifting starting

Post by yuio » 09 Nov 2006, 01:09

Hi, i am 14 and i have been having knee pains recently, not a real sharp pain, but when i do sprints,jumps, or squats(noweight) i feel a little pain in them and since i am going to have my winter weight lifting program starting on Monday I don't really know what i should do. My trainer says its because I am getting taller rapidly and my bones are growing faster than my muscles I am feeling pains in my knees. Will it be a bad idea to start weight lifting on Monday?

I think you should try to start your lifting, but if it hurts very badly or you can tell that it is getting worse then you should stop. Maybe then you could limit yourself to only upper body lifting until you stop feeling pain in your knees?

i get sore knees after i do weights that work the quads it's really annoying and i;m not sure why it happens. (the weights are not very heavy usually 30-40kgs) is this the same problem you are having and does anyone know why this happens?

in my opinion i think your too young to start working out, if I were you I would just stick to strength training like push ups, chin ups etc...it wont stunt your growth and you have a higher risk of injury working out at this age.
