A 14 year old is a freshman in high school typically. Weight training is so beneficial for their overall fitness, but also for building up their athletic ability through enhanced central nervous system stimulation and gains in muscular/bone development. I do think though that middle school aged students should begin with a strong body weight plan first before moving on to the weight room. Thinking about biological age vs. chronological age! Some kids are more ready than others.

I've been using coconut oil for a while now for many reasons. I buy refined, organic, coconut oil in a jar for about $6 @ my grocer. No coconut smell, solid that turns liquid easily & no coconut taste

Never tried coconut oil, so I plan to do a bit of factual research. If even some of these are true then heck I'll buy the oil in bulk. :)
