3 Solid Strength Training Tips For Young Athletes…

I always enjoy getting to help the young Jedi’s of strength when it comes to guiding them in their path towards obtaining strength and performance for life and sport. The excitement of a young spirit looking to build themselves up like the larger than life coaches and athletes that they most admire is an awesome thing. I’m lucky to be in a position to where I can help influence all of the athletes that I do both young and old.

The Direction Of Your Strength Training Program…

You see I’m constantly having to wrangle in youngsters (and older beginners) when it comes to starting them out on an effective and good habit forming strength and conditioning program. I mean let’s face it, we’ve all been bitten with the “excitement bug” a time or ten in our lifetimes, and for better or worse it always has a tendency to shape our perceptions of certain tasks and activities. 

I mean it’s easy to get excited about most any venture and to want to look directly at the “finished product” rather than to see all the learning, coaching, blood, sweat, tears, and calluses it took to get to that finished product. Well this is especially true when it comes to young athletes that are looking around at their peers starting to hit the weight room, and having to hear them talk about how awesome their “gainzzzz” are from all the training they’re getting into. You know how it goes. It always involves more “talk” than reality at that young age which is why I decided to address this in the following video. 

Now if you are either currently in the position Brad is in, or if you have been there before then you understand exactly what I’m talking about. The fact is that this video should ring true especially if you have had a few years of experience and can look back to see just how effective these basics can be.

The point is that with today’s abundance and readily available stockpile of information we all tend to overlook what matters, which ends up being the principle foundations of strength training. With all these new and exciting programs along with the gyms to show off all the bells and whistles it’s hard to keep people’s focus on what matters the most…GETTING STRONGER!

The point is that with the younger generation these days this is more important than ever. It’s my duty to stay on top of this and to remind my athletes BOTH young and old of the importance of what matters the most, which starts with the basics.

  1. When he was still a small Child my Son started on strength and fitness. He “gets it” … a life time pursuit and the “finished product” is what is found in the coffin 🙂

  2. Amen to that Doc! It does take a lifetime of devotion and steady persistence. This is something most don’t see as that most folks these days just want everything “immediately.”
