This is a volume based training program in which the loads, volume and intensity will gradually increase through the training cycle. The emphasis will be on technique first. How well we perform an exercise will yield much better results than working with greater loads improperly. The majority of our strength will be using our body weight only. Your child will work on skills to improve their endurance, flexibility, change of direction, jumping ability and running mechanics. The majority of the training that we will do will be whole body movements as opposed to more traditional single joint movements that you would find in a bodybuilding or power-lifting type of workout. The goal of this program is to increase functional strength and athleticism while developing an athlete that can sustain a high level of activity for long periods of time. Much of the training is geared toward developing balance and core stabilization to both elevate athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury.
