The only thing is that they shouldn't do 1 rep max lifts because the developing skeletal system can't handle it.
Iīve heard that a proper weightlifting routine for teenagers can even increase their growth. But again, I donīt know what a "proper" routine for teenagers would be.
I would not just hit the weights as if I were an adult, thatīs all.
DO NOT LISTEN TO ME

So you've been spying on my training routines haven't you???

That's what I have your mom for Koto_Ryu. I don't know what I'd do without her. Tell her I will see her at the strip club tonight.

Don't worry so much about weights - work on your aerobic fitness. Run, play soccer, ride bike.
Sustained moderate effort for at least 30 minutes - no breaks.
You won't be able to learn how to wrestle (let alone compete effectively) if you gas early.
Weights won't hurt, but for wrestling I'd look into body weight exercises and mobility drills. Something like http://www.trainforstrength.com/workouts.shtml
