Default Why Teens Won't Squat

Found this on why teens won't squat.

Quote:
1) Mindset: They lack the drive to stick with something to the end. Making their training schedules sporadic if they train at all.
2) Attention span: Severely lacking, which is important since the squat requires attention to detail. This coupled with other young children in the room can lead to a weightroom full of monkeys swinging from machine to machine.
3) Coordination: May or may not be coordinated at this age
4) Kinesthetic sense: Goes along with coordination, but to me it also indicates a lack of experience with moving one's body in a particular pattern (IE keeping your entire body tight as squat/deadlift)
5) Immediate gratification: They want to be strong NOW, and as such they may do stupid things (IE lifting too much weight with poor form)
6) Ego: Clearly, the guy from Muscle fitness with the 20inch arms whose split routine would take 3 hours in the gym knows best. So, any routine I offer would pale in comparison.
7) Ego again: Curls are more important than the squats to these kids
8) Ego again: The idea of getting fat or losing abs during this age may deter some of them from eating properly.
9) Nutrition: These kids eat doritos and drink pepsi for lunch, and that's on a good day.
10) Priorities: At the end of the day, it's just not that important to them.
