youth development

A never ending debate in many sports, but especially in weightlifting, concerns when a young athlete should begin training in the discipline.
We often overlook that cleaning up movement patterns and building a strong, safe foundation is the first priority of training.
Fostering physical activity from a young age instills discipline, promotes fun, and produces a more social child.
Kids won’t grow up to have healthy phone boundaries, relationships, or nutritional habits if their parents don’t provide that model.
The modern health epidemic is a product of the norms and distorted expectations created in people’s earliest years.
There are real costs of following the herd.
It is the age of choice and opportunity. The sky is the limit and often that creates paralysis by analysis.
By consistently facing physical resistance we gain confidence that permeates every other meaningful life endeavor.
Modern norms have created devastating global health picture and all signs point to this trend worsening in our youngest generation.
Lobotomized by their devices, many of our youth drift along the superficial, never acting to create their own life.
We don't need football players doing public service announcements, pleading with kids to play for an hour a day.
Youth athletes have plenty of time to load up the bar; don’t set them up for future failure by loading an improper movement pattern.
Whether you work with kids professionally as a teacher or coach or are just a concerned parent, it’s your responsibility to show kids how to incorporate, enjoy, and crave movement.
The modern athletic experience is characterized by over-commitment at an early age and big business at the expense of physical well being and behavioral progress.
It's time we had a hard conversation about the biggest hindrance to your child's development: you.
Youth training is full of flash and gimmicks. Selecting the right trainer can make or break your young athlete's career.
With all this knowledge and abundance, why are our problems getting worse?
