5 doctors agree

In brief: Depends on WO & kid

Working out encompasses a broad range of activity that may or may not be appropriate for a given kid.
If your q is about weight lifting or powerligting the standards are defined. The aap and other orgs reccomend these activities to those kids who have reached skeletal maturity. So if buba is at his final height and shaving, fine. He should also be supervised by properly trained personel.
