Default Young Athlete Training - 10-02-2010, 01:49 PM

Hey guys,
I have been presented with a unique opportunity. My neighbor would like me to help out there sports teams by getting these kids into a training program for their off seasons. I wanted to know if guys have any good information I should know about training these kids. They are all 10-12 years of age.

I have a basic idea of what I want to do with the athletes, but I thought I would throw it up here anyways.

Thanks guys!

my thoughts exactly, I want these kids to learn the basics of weight training and athletic training so they can avoid making the mistakes that most young trainees do.

^^^ Ditto Kris. Right now it's best imo to stick to bodyweight as to not chance (even though I don't think it's super likely) messing with their growth plates. Speed + agility training and body weight movements at this age is good imo.

I honestly think all they need is body weight stuff, they can build a great base of strength with just push ups, pull ups, dips, and other body weight stuff.

Then once they master that stuff and are a little older, they can start lifting and they will already be ahead of most kids that never focused on building muscle with body weight stuff.

Thats great man, from my point of view you would be a great role model for these kids. When I was wrestling we all would look up to our coach who was really buff, and we would always be asking him how to get ripped. Although he was kinda a dick, but still cool at the same time, I think that was key, being able to push us and be a total ass, but still be cool. Good Luck!

If you have access to take them to a gym, I would occasionally and would show them proper form and explain the need to keeping good form, kids soak up everything and even if you don't do much gym work with them, the knowledge would be there somewhere. Also, I would look into some strongman training, lots of those exercises are great for endurance and strength. If nothing more than pushing / pulling a sled. Body weight exercises are great though. Plyometrics also. I think strength training is great for kids, I wouldn't push a kid to max out very often, I think it could be bad for them but working out with reps over 5 and mostly in the 8 - 12 range would be great. Just an opinion though.

I would stress the importance that eating healthy will also play a major role on how.they perform.

There are way to many overweight kids out there these days.

Enforce, to keep it fun and enjoy their sport....that hard work off the field will also allow them to excell on the field

I think that is a great idea. I know kids get the whole healthy eating thing in school but if they don't see what they can apply it to and direct benefit of it I don't think they really care.

Though I may not be a professional athlete or a professional body builder, I will try my best to answer question.

As you already know, athletes obtain their physique through training. Most people are not born with any of them, and goes through hard training in order to reach their own goals. Following are the steps fwith these anyone become a good athlete indeed.

- Cardio minimum 20 minutes, preferably 40-60 minutes a day. 5 days a week. If you feel like you can handle it, increasing to 6, or 7 days in a week is okay, but try not to go below 5 days a week.

- Come up with a diet plan. This does not mean starving, or not eating. A nutritional diet plan that assists you in the cardio exercise, and are able to lose body fat in the process. Generally speaking, eat high protein, low carb.

- Weight training is not required at the time, but it is always okay to work on your core muscles to get ready for the weight training.

Tips:
In any training, if you can go over 12 to 15 reps in a set, then you're not training properly, or not training efficiently, unless you are simply going for the maximum rep rather than training.

Yeah...... There is a lot of information you have here that is very contradictory to Young Athletes training. Where is is best for any athlete to not start training at the age of 15 at least to start getting bone structure grow. Resistance training does this. Yeah it may not be required but you can't generalize like that and tell someone who might want to lift weight that they can't .

Well I agree with Mac, and everyone is posting on super old threads. At that age the persons metabolism is probably through the roof any ( I know mine was then ) and goig low carb at that age is not a good idea.
