It's great work, much of which I do because I feel it's important that kids get the right coaching and develop in the right way, rather than doing stupid stuff with a clueless teacher, coach or trainer.

Anyway, with that being said; I think there are quite a few questions to answer and so the following book has been written with that in mind.

- Do they need it? Are they beneficial? Is there any point in training children with weights?

- Are they ready for strength training? What should they start out with?

This book will address the question of safety, answer the question of the benefits and need for strength training with our young whipper-snappers, and how a programme should start.
