There is not a regular weight a 12 year old should lift because what really matters is your height and size.Some people are naturally skinny for there height, if you are a person who is kind of slim for your height you shouldnt judge the amount of weight you use just on your height. Some people have more muscle than others and are naturally "strong".But no matter what height you have or if you are naturally more muscular, you should just lift what is comfortable for you.You should be able to lift that same weight about 10-15 times without having problems.Just experiment with different weights and find what is good for you.

I'm 11, turning 12 in less than a month, and I am lifting 10 pound dumbbells. I don't think kids under 15 should bench.

You should do what feels best for you you should lift around 10-12 pounds of dumbbells and do situps when you get to be 13-15 you MUST DO 25-30 pounds of weight and you will be super strong but I'm 10 and I do 15 pounds of weight so.
