I know what you're saying, I was actually offered a job as a strength and conditioning coach for the JV football team at my towns high school, but passed when I learned a few freshmen were on the roster. Too young.

I started weight training before I was 16, and I know a lot of other people did so as well. I think it can be perfectly healthy at a younger age so long as you know what you're doing, and you do your research. Playing things safe, not just throwing around weight aimlessly and injuring yourself.

Maybe it would be one thing for pump supplements, energy supplements, or fat burners (pH/HD cycles completely out of the question), but if it's supplements that are natural and have been shown to be beneficial to people even at younger ages (whey, fish oils, BCAA's, creatine, etc.) I don't see why not.

Again, just curiosities, always nice to see other POV's.
Exactly, just my POV...
