how to start
becoming an athlete
The Youth Athlete strength & conditioning plan is simple and easy to follow. It's designed for youth athletes starting strength & conditioning for the first time who want to get an athletic edge in sport.
The overall goal for this training plan is to increase strength, speed and fitness while decreasing injury risk. We have split this plan into three segments, and every section is four weeks in length with varied and progressive exercises, drills and challenges. Together they create a twelve-week programme that aims to prepare young athletes for the rigours of their sport.
THE SECOND STEP
After eight weeks of structured training, athletes will be feeling more athletic, more confident in themselves and have a good understanding of the programme. Everything in the first two phases has prepared you for this stage. You have obtained everything you need to start becoming an athlete.
A huge part of staying on top of your game is by being as robust as possible. Strength in muscles and joints will not only help athletes perform better, but is essential for avoiding injuries. We, of course, suggest that young athletes complete part one and two before starting part three to ensure athletes attain the correct development.
