You never delineated strength training vs. weightlifting. Olympic weightlifting is one of the oldest sports and often begins at an early age. It is comprised of the snatch and clean & jerk. Powerlifting is squat, bench press, and deadlift. All of these movements are used commonly in strength training. They are the basis for nearly all sports training. I agree with the psychological component of the article concerning obsessive disorders relating to social image. But the dangers of bodyweight and resistance training are completely unfounded.
