Youth Sports Dilemma

This was taken from a recent seminar where Coach Micela spoke to a group of Chiropractors who were studying about Youth Sports Injuries.

Youth Sports Dilemma

1. There are more kids who are active in sports then there are qualified coaches to work with them.

2. Rush for high levels of competition at an earlier age without an established base of training or sport knowledge.

3. Year round playing with little to no time off time between seasons,

4. Increasing demands to receive a College Sports Scholarship.

Youth Sports Solution

1. Parents believing in a Long Term Athletic Plan  (Don’t rush the process)

2. Coaches need to seek more knowledge in Sports Biomechanics and Exercise Physiology in order to understand the demands of the sport.

3. Parents and Coaches Goal must be to develop a well rounded Athlete First!

4. Effort and Learning can be as or more important than Outcome alone!

Technique Tip: Press from Split Position

There are exercise that have been shown to have a better transfer over to the Competitive Lifts. For the Jerk, the Press from the Split position has been shown help the athlete develop the necessary muscles and position strength that you will use in the Jerk. Here Morgan Huppenthal is performing the movement. Notice that the lower body does not move while she is Pressing the bar overhead. She does not want to move her upper body at all while doing this exercise. No forward or backward swaying of the Torso. Morgan does an excellent job of maintaining position. This exercise will use less weight than your traditional Standing Press. Once the position is Master slowly add weights. Some Coaches use this exercise as a warm up for the Jerk we at Performance One use it at the end of the Training Session as a Pure Strength Exercise
