I may have lost some people & opportunities at 28 that I thought would kill me...but looking at who/what I’ve lost versus who/what I’ve gained & kept, I can’t help but smile like an idiot & look forward to 29, because life doesn’t suck. #OneLuckyBish #YoullFloatToo #ImAllowedToBeExtraTonight
What an amazing time today at our very first Deadlift/Bench Press Party! We had 32 lifters and 70+ in attendance. Couldn’t have done it without @dr.barrow who was instrumental in orchestrating it all. Shout out to everyone...I mean everyone as there were 32 lifters and 32 PRs made today! Until next time ya’ll!!! 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
Gratitude // from where Pegasus started to where we currently call home 😍 .
Tomorrow is the start of exciting changes to the way we deliver our programming
My brother especially, has been working tirelessly to get this right so we can work on training even smarter than we already do
Fully targeted programs for each individual
Supporting nutritional advice and help along the way
I am so excited to see everyone reach their goals and potential!

Now as a parent have you asked yourself when should my kids get into strength training?
And when you think of strength training does lifting weights come to mind?
What if I said let's get them lifting weights the earlier the better.
Now let's step back to the original question of:
Should my kid be doing strength training?
Let's forget about WEIGHTS and focus on how kids really build strength. Strength can come in different forms and have multiple functions to improve performance. Now most people think of strength as muscles and the size or how lean a kid is but what we don't see is what makes the biggest impact. For young kids and there overall strength here is how we should talk about it and understand how kids can really improve their strength. As a sport performance specialist I am confused on teaching kids movements in 3 ways. Slow movements, fast movements and loaded movements.
What does this mean? Well when training for sport it's about stressing tissue (muscle) to movement in a variety of ways and load the nervous system (aka brain). So yes Pro's and older teenagers will have different strength opportunities then young kids. But this is how younger kids benefit from strength training.
And these benefits come from how the nervous system adapts to strength improvements.
1. Slow Body Weight Movements: develops body awareness and motor control by creating patterns in the brain to help with such things as balance.
2. Fast Body weight Movements: increase stability to help with reactivity that improves cutting and change of direction.
3. Loaded Movements: added external resistance (weight/load) will "overload" the nervous system (brain) to handle more demand such has players leaning on you, light contact etc. Also helping increase agility and change of direction.
If you would like to get a bette understanding on how young kids can improve strength in sport send me a massage and we can set up a few trial to show you how training youth for sport will help with strength and performance.
