These three tips will ensure that the strength training program for a young athlete is safe.
We don't ever want to send a young athlete who's not done much strength training in the past to some random gym workout or somebody who doesn't specialize in training youth.
We want to always ensure that they get the blood flowing, but we also want them to work on mobility, especially their hips. They do so much with their legs, so much lateral, then forward and back, stopping and plyometric movements where they're jumping, it’s crucial that their hips are always good and warm.
You want to ensure that the person working with them is in-tune with the different demands and needs in season -vs- out of season.
Their trainer also needs to understand the specific requirements for their sport, and those movement patterns, as well as imbalances that can occur based on some muscles getting overworked and others unde-trained.
If the trainer can do those three things, you can have peace of mind that they are with the right person that they'll be safe and properly trained.
