Learn To Lift Weights For Teens

Learn To Lift Weights For Teens ... or LTL4T ... is a program designed to teach kids between the ages of 13 and 16 years old how to lift weights safely and with good form.

But it's also a program for parents.

As your teen starts to lift weights, you should be watching closely to ensure your child performs the exercises safely, but how do you do that if you have no clue what "good form" looks like?

That's where Learn To Lift Weights comes in.​

By going through the program with your child, you'll know exactly what to look for. You'll know how to be a "spotter", helping to correct bad form, and making sure that your child progresses in a safe manner.

As a father, I know that kids can want to go full-speed at something new, not understanding the concept of slow, steady progression. LTL4T will help you keep them on track and to know when they're moving too quickly with their training.

What Learn To Lift Weights For Teens Will Do For You and Your Child

We’ll show your child how to perform each exercise with perfect form. Perfect form delivers results faster and greatly minuses the risk of injury.

Show you and your child which exercises give you the most benefit. You don’t need to do dozens of exercises. You can see results with just 6 exercises. We show you which 6.

We teach your teen how to safely progress in their weight training. Teens believe themselves to be invincible and can push themselves too hard. LTL4T helps avoid this.

We provide your teen with sample workout routines based on their body type, activity levels, and goals to make their workouts more efficient.

We show you what to look for when buying weight lifting equipment so you spend your dollars wisely. You’ll know which equipment is essential, what’s nice to have and what you can avoid altogether, saving you hundreds of dollars along the way.

Why I Learned To Lift Weights

I was a chubby little kid (with a bad haircut)

Teased by kids and parents alike, I suffered from low self-esteem to be sure.

Then puberty kicked in, and so did my desire to attract the attention of the opposite sex. The self-conscious feelings I had only got worse.

At 15, I learned to lift weights, hoping to improve both my self-confidence and my chances with Chrissie Palmerson.

I joined a gym and went to work. Not knowing anything, I looked to the biggest guys in the gym to see what they were doing. They all did bench presses and arm curls, so I did bench presses and arm curls.

And I started devouring every word written in the popular muscle magazines.

Freaks Of Nature And False Hopes

I wanted desperately to be BIG ... RIPPED ... HUUUUGE!

What I didn't realize is just how unrealistic the men in these magazines were. I was too naive to know that what these magazines were selling was pure fantasy.

Never mind the drugs involved to get that big. These guys were genetic freaks of nature. Their volume of training … their style of training … was completely wrong for a beginner to weight training.

Ignorance Comes With A High Cost

When you’re young, your body bounces back quickly. So despite stupid training habits, I saw results. My chest and arms grew. And so did my confidence.

Looking back now, I can tell you I paid a price for all that youthful ignorance. The price came in the form of sore shoulders, temperamental knees and poor flexibility.

I didn't want others to suffer the same fate.

Hi, I'm Curtis Penner.

For 10-years, I helped people of all ages and abilities learn to lift weights as a certified fitness coach. I wanted to help them avoid the mistakes I made early on. Mistakes that would continue to haunt me.


That's why I, along with my good friend Dave Smith, have created our program - Learn To Lift Weights For Teens.

We want to show your son or daughter how to lift weights the right way and avoid suffering later in life.
