Should Young Kids Lift Weights?


When I see videos like this, I'm amazed by the strength displayed by kids at such a young age.

But what about the detractors? Do kids stunt their growth by lifting heavy weights too early? Does it damage their growth plates? Are they putting themselves at risk of injury, causing them to be crippled as they grow older? Or is weight training a reasonable part of exercise that they should learn at some point?
