How old do you have to be to go into weight training programs?
While there are no hard and fast rules here as to what the best age is to engage in weight lifting and serious strength training programs, 13 is recommended as a good age to start lifting for both males and females. The important thing here is to start light, focus on technique, and as much as possible get a trainer that will guide you through the entire process. As for what age one should stop weight training, it really depends on the person’s health. If you have obvious health problems such as osteoporosis and heart ailments then weight training is out of the question. To be on the safe side it is always best to get the advice of a medical professional before engaging in any new exercise regimen.
