MYTHS ABOUT YOUTH S&C

Unfortunately, a lot of parents and coaches still live in the past when it comes to fitness training for youth athletes. The game has changed a lot, with absolutely no evidence that resistance training will stunt a child's growth. 

In fact introducing strength and conditioning from a young age is a fantastic way to advance many health and fitness related components including:

Balance and coordination

Muscle and tissue strength to prevent injuries

Bone growth and development 

Flexibility and movement quality 

Strength and conditioning is about much more than lifting weights, it is about teaching correct movement patterns: running, jumping, landing, squatting, crawling etc. Junior S&C is about helping young people develop movement literacy so they can learn to love to use their body to its full potential.

THE BENEFITS

The benefits of the HLP Athlete Mobility program include:

Whilst youth S&C can be highly effective for aiding the development of young people when done correctly and suitably for the individual, when it is done poorly with unsuitable exercises, this can lead to injuries and a lack of motivation. As a coach who has worked with young athletes for almost 10 years here are some of the biggest issues I see when it comes to S&C for young athletes:

Parents and coaches chucking random exercises together for their child(team) to do with very little understanding of the WHY

No real structure or program of progression - often giving too advanced exercises that the individual isn't ready for 

Not understanding correct positioning for movements - which leads to athlete ingraining bad habits. 

Young people going to the gym and lifting with no supervision or program to follow - turns into an ego competition (especially for boys - who end up with bad backs)

Jumping and plyometric drills used incorrectly - too intense and poor quality leading to all sorts of problems.

As you can see there are lots of ways for youth S&C (the same as with adults) to go wrong. Youth S&C can have MASSIVE benefits, but programs should be prescribed by a professional who has spent years studying how to work with this population. 

THE BENEFITS

What are the benefits of using our Youth S&C programs: 

PROGRAM COVERS

Wealth of experience - Our coaches have spent years in the trenches working with young athletes and building programs to support them

We have different level programs depending on the age and training experience of the athlete - thus giving them the right suitability. 

Our junior S&C programs develop all athletic qualities, from developing strength in fundamental movement patterns to learning how to accelerate and decelerate efficiently. 

Workouts are done on the HLP app where you can track and monitor your progress over time. 

Take out the guesswork - no more injuries and time-wasting! Everything is laid out for you, all you need to do is put the work in.
