MPH Teens: Building Foundations For Athletic Performance

Why?

Sports typically focus on specificity during practice sessions (learning how to pitch a baseball, for example), but building a solid foundation in functional movements is often missed or undertrained. This deficiency is addressed with CrossFit, or general physical preparedness training. With appropriate CrossFit instruction and progression, and a focus on developing strength through all functional ranges of motion, young athletes have the opportunity to not only improve sport performance, but also to reduce the risk of sports injuries.

What?

  • Teach correct mechanics in basic bodyweight gymnastics (squats, pull-ups, pushups, ring support holds, etc)
  • Learn proper, safe mechanics of functional weight training movements (squats, presses, pulls) with dumbbells, barbells, and odd objects
  • Begin CrossFit conditioning using the above movements, as well as monostructural elements (running, rowing, jump rope)
