10 Year Old Kutin Squats 215

10-year-old girl breaks world squat powerlifting record - South Texas, Corpus Christi, Coastal Bend


CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - Even though Naomi Kutin is 10-years-old and weighs slightly less than 97 pounds, she's anything but "little."

Sunday Kutin broke the world record for raw squatting when he lifted 215 pounds, more than twice her body weight. The previous record for the 97 pound division was 209 pounds broken by a 44 year old European woman last summer. Kutin actually regained her own record after losing it several months ago.

Kutin drew a round of applause from the onlookers as she completed the record-breaking lift.

"When I was younger, my friends would be doing a lot of things that I couldn't do, and I wanted to do something extraordinary," an excited Kutin said. "I wanted to break a record of some sort and I just really wanted to get this record."

"You know she gets giggly or silly in a 10-year-old girl kind of way," Naomi's Dad said. "She's also learned a lot about psyche. In this sport, it's not just about strength, it's also about the ability to focus and psyche, and she's back there pacing and getting herself psyched and she's really doing that well too."

Kutin, a native of Fairlawn, New Jersey has already been competing in lifting competitions for several years.

Here is a comment from Facebook. Thoughts?


this is the stupidest shyt I've ever seen. A ten year olds body is still developing and should NOT have this type of weight compressing their spine. Doctors and health care experts all agree that a general exercise program or running or body weight exercises is all a child and adolescents should partake in. Heavy weightlifting can be detrimental and disrupt the growing process. This child's parents are IGNORANT.

Fear arises from ignorance.

Fear leads to hate.

Hate leads to the darkside!

There have never been any studies undertaken to assess the info so the info, to all intents and purposes, is at most dubious.

When did children stop lifting heavy weights? There would have been a time, in our past, where even children lifted heavy; an adult age (for work purposes) was considered 15y/o in 1972, 12y/o in 1930 (based on hubby's father) and then the individual was expected to go and take on a full-time manual labour job...with many prior to the age of 12y/o doing heavy farm work.

I think it's a safe enough endevour. I mean the streeses from squats are probably duplicated in many thing kids do already; like jumping, gymnastics, wrestling, etc.

My only issue is having your kid compete at such a high level at such an early age, especially in a sport where she will reach her peak 20 years from now. Slow down. Teach the kids body control, technique, and be progressive...but don't have them going for maxes at such an early age. I've seen videos of here squatting where her form was absolutely scary, certainly an area that could be addressed before pushing things too hard.

Link them the thread that I started where I posted a study about this. Then tell them 9 out of 10 doctors agree that they're retarded. Doctors said it, so it must be true.
