I struggle with that conceptually. I have had several conversations with Glenn at Pendlay about Jr lifting. I also have followed some of the information that Peter has posted. I do not let him lift except on Sat or Sun and then it is only 2 or 3 sets with 3 - 5 reps. They have changed the schedule at gymnastics to 4 days a week with M, W, H for 2 hours and S for 3 hours so he is getting all the exercise he needs.

We lift / workout together more as a bonding thing than anything else. When he gets older he can decide on his own what he is going to do with lifting, but he will at least have a solid understanding of the basics.
