FAQ's

Question:
Is it safe for young athlete’s to lift weights?

Answer:
One of the unfortunate myths regarding the training of young athletes is the notion that resistance training is either unsafe or unhealthy for younger adolescent and pre-adolescent athletes. Yet numerous scientific and medical studies have demonstrated that a properly managed resistance training program is safe and has no negative impact on epiphyseal (growth) plate development. In addition, young athletes who participate in a regular, well-supervised strength training program generally experience fewer and less severe injuries on the field than athletes who train improperly or not at all. 


Question: 
How many days a week should my young athlete be training? 

Answer:
Off-season/Pre-season: 3-6 days/week

In-season: 1-2 days/week 

Question:
My son/daughter plays more than one sport, can he/she train for all sports at once?  Do they have to train for one specific sport?

Answer:
YES!  There are several advantages to implementing cross-training techniques.  As one season draws near, it is important to be more sport specific.  However, in the off-season multi-sport training (cross-training) can be very beneficial.  There are several training modalities that can be applied to each sport.
