Why Most Youth Strength Training Programs Suck
The vast majority of youth “strength training” or “athletic performance” programs suck.
1. They fail to make you strong.
2. They don’t teach you how to move well – which is a pre-requisite for getting strong.
Here’s one of our 17-year-olds sumo deadlifting 190 kg / 418 pounds for 5 reps.
And it’s not uncommon for our 16- and 17-year-olds to do walking lunges with 80, 90, or even 100+ kg as you see here…
Not to toot my own horn or anything…
But our guys get strong.
And they do so while displaying good lifting form.
Unfortunately, this is hardly the case with most junior hockey players.

And now, STACK.com published my article where I explain the biggest mistake in youth strength training programs.
