    Well. 14 is a bit young for any serious training but you can train at a fair rate and build up a good base for future training. if you only have 2 5 pound weights. go out and buy some more. simple as that. check this page here and search through the routines to find something that suits you http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=29461

    as i said before, i wouldnt try any serious training at 14, it could stunt your growth pretty good, even at 16 i dont go crazy on training. wait till your fully grown m8y, hope this info helps. if you dont have the means to fork out for equipment just try standard sit ups press ups cardio dips pullups.

    good luck

    Weight Training will NOT stunt your growth, repeat, Weight training with not stunt your growth.

    Help - If you are new to weight training i would start with push ups, chin ups, sit ups, and body weight squats. Do these 4 movements 2-3 days a week. Running, swimming, or playing sports of some kind 2-3 days a week will also benefit you.

    Try this for the weights...

    Pushups - 3 sets of 5
    Chin ups - 3 sets as many as possible
    Body wgt squats 3 sets of 20
    Sit ups - 3 sets of 10

    Start with these reps and each week try to increase the reps each set of each exercise. These movements along with other activities like mentioned about will help strengthen your connective tissue so you will be ready to weight train later and handle heavier weights.

    what is a body whgt squat?
    im a little worried about stunting my growth and trust me i have a lot of growth to stunt (only 4 11 3/4 last time i checked[V]) I have heard mixed opinions on this subject have also heard from a doctor on one website it will not stunt your growth and on others people have said that doctors told them it would.

    Im always open to new information. Show me a study or where it has been proven and i will believe it. That is an old myth that weight training will stunt growth. People claim it but never have anything to back it up. In what way do you think it will stunt growth?

    A bodyweight squat is just a squat using no weight. I assume you know what a squat is. You could also look up hindu squats which is a real popular way to do bodyweight squats.

    well even if there is no evidence that heavy weight training will stunt your growth, i would'nt wanna take the risk if i was 4ft11 would you?

    i'm not saying he should'nt train, but just keep it simple like you guys have said. sit ups push ups etc etc.
