Our 8th grader, who is as cute as can be, has been concerned lately. It seems that all the boys have had a growth spurt except for him. All the boys have gotten taller, except for him. All the boys have muscles, except for him.
The fact that Dad is 6'4" brings him no comfort. He wants to be tall now. He want muscles now.
Height we can't help him with, but muscles . . .
So, exactly one month ago my husband put him on a 3-4 times a week weight training program . . . they even took "before" measurements.
Tonight, one month later, they took the "after" measurements.
biceps increased by 3/8ths of an inch;
neck, by 1/2 inch;
pride (his and Dad's), off the charts.
