Why Should I Start With Strength Training?

Whether an athlete plays basketball, football, volleyball, or tennis, they will need explosiveness, precision, and endurance. These foundational skills help them to maintain their form, make point-winning plays, and stay healthy during their games. In order to properly perform a specific set of movements required by their sport, a player must have a strong foundation in strength training to build other skills upon. 

Strength training works by improving intra and intermuscular coordination and strengthening the musculo-tendon units to sustain consistent stressing and impact that athletes will experience. Translation for those of us without an exercise science degree? It’s a key component to avoiding or decreasing the severity of any injuries that may occur during an athlete’s career, as well as improving performance.

How Old Should An Athlete Be to Begin Strength Training?

Children as young as eight can begin a safe and supervised weight training program as long as they have good balance and coordination and can do the basic exercises without losing their form. 

Strength training for young athletes should not be confused with weight lifting; a smart strength training program will use light resistance, body weight combinations, and controlled movements to improve fitness levels. Weight training, on the other hand, focuses on a goal of lifting heavier weights and building larger muscles which can have negative effects on children whose growth plates haven’t yet turned to bone. Our training programs for our Raleigh athletes are specifically catered to push the athlete as far as possible within the range of what will be safe and productive for them in the long term when it comes to performance AND heath.
