I started at 13, but with fairly light weights. In high school, I got more serious, as I played football, ran track and worked out with the wrestling team. Altogether, it's been 10 years.

I've never really done it seriously. But i'm 17 now and tomorrow i'm buying a 1 year membership card at the gym where i train TKD. I just got Pavel.T's book i read it and i loved it, i'll do PTP excerzises for 2 weeks (there's a tournement coming up so i dont want to gain weight). Then i'll do his bear routine untill i've gained about 7-8kg's and then go for PTP excersizes again. The reason being that at the moment i'm alwasy battling my weight in order to stay in my weight group, and i dont have a lot of muscles, i want to start growing some muscles before i start maximizing what i can get out of them.

I'm coming up on 24 now, and I've been lifting since high school. I just stopped weights altogether though (gym to expensive) and am now just lifting kettlebells, sandbags, rocks, and doing bodyweight exercises.

The bones are still in developmental stages at age 12. Thus, most teachers dont allow board breaking til after that age. There are some examples of young bodybuilders who havent had any "reported" complications but who knows. Who can determine what side effects increased levels of testosterone, etc can have on an adolescent. I do know that only at that young age can you actually lengthen the ligaments that will ensure greater flexibility for a lifetime.

As you probably figured out, im 15 and i stretch everyday to insure flexibility when i am older.
