The benefits of strength training for young people are clearly documented, but many teachers, fitness instructors and youth coaches are unsure how to proceed.
As a result they often end up adapting unsuitable adult versions of strength-training programmes.
However this new book is set to change all this as it guides you in the development of safe, effective and enjoyable training programmes for 7 to 18 year olds.
It covers the latest thinking on nutrition, hydration and recovery to maximize the effects of strength training and minimize the risks of overtraining.
Additional changes, based on the authors’ studies, are reflected in workout frequency, exercise repetitions, related training components, and other factors that affect programme design and conditioning results.
Youth Strength Training is the definitive source in the design and implementation of programmes for schools, fitness centres, or domestic settings and will promote high rates of strength development and spark a lifelong interest in strength-building activities.
