    Horrible form, I'm aware. Instead of replying with complaints give me pointers.

    Pointer #1. Do less weight. Bad form will get you injured. Injured will take you away from sports. You don't want that at age 14.
    Everybody wanna be a bodybuilder but dont nobody wanna lift this heavy ass weight. R.C.

    Good lifts for your age.

    Tips.

    1. Drop body fat, you are too heavy for such a young age.
    2. Slow down your reps and work on your form.

    I agree 100%. My freshman year of H.S. I acquired a spondylolysis of the L4 and L5 vertebra by the fracture of the pars interarticularis, caused either by a chop block I took in football or an accident using the leg sled with too much weight being used. I was in recreational Taekwondo at the time as well. Long short is I ended up getting a surgery at 15 resulting in two broken scews, a chunk of bone taken from my pelvis, and a still crushed pars. It's not really a problem now but it sure took me out of any intense activity for over a year when all was said and done. It sucked hard.

    Nice shotput though. 50ft. is respectable.

    If you have 3 people to spot you for a bench, one should be behind the bar and two should be at the sides ready to lift the bar. Use all the available people to spot you.

    Also, learn how to arch properly and use your legs, upper, and lower back to help you put up the weight. Your positioning is all off.

    Last, there should be a distinguishable pause at the bottom of the rep, not a bounce off of your chest.

    What weight shotput was that? That was my sport in High School. My throws sucked in the beginning when I knew nothing & just "muscled" the ball. It was all in the form...once I got the technique down and hit the zone that thing sailed...great feeling! Nice job there

    Thanks for all the positive responses, they were actually quite helpful! But to the last comment It was an 8.8lb but I throw 12lb in highschool but in AAU track you use the weight for your age and since I'm young it's 8

    Great job on those lifts, keep up the work. look up "West Side" training, that type of training will transfer nicely to football. good luck

    brandon

    love the dedication... keep it up..

    just a pointer/my opinion. be very careful throwing the shot in the snow.. one slip, and out goes the groin or hamstring..

    all the best..

    Strong 14 year old man. If you're lifting for sports performance, I'd start learning some Olympic lifts as well.

    WOW DUDE!!! At 14 I hit 135x1 for the first time and I was thrilled. As long as you don't overdo the weight and get hurt you're gonna be a champ one day. I'd suggest avoiding maxing out. When I first hit 315x1 I wrecked the tendon in my chest. I was able to lift it just fine, but that tendon just suffered a major blow and it's been 3 months i'm still afraid to go over 225 and to go near failure. IMO don't add a penny to the bar unless you can do what's on there before at least 4 times

    Please, please get your spots right first. Like mentioned before have 2 guys on each side and one guy behind. I saw one guy just watching you on your right side. Trust me it not worth the risk at 14. But keep working on your form with less weight. Still a good lift for 14 though.
