Does Sports Specific Training for teen athletes work?
Teen Athletes and the Benefits of Sports Specific Training
By Andrea Shliapa
The days of waiting all winter for the ground to finally thaw and dry out enough for pre-season baseball practice are long gone. Five hours of fielding ground balls or double-play drills until the sun go down used to be about as far as sports conditioning would go for teens playing organized baseball.
These days, our teenage athletes get the benefit of millions of dollars of research and development in the field of sports conditioning and physiology usually reserved only for athletes at the highest level of their respective sports.
Does it change the games they play?
For some young athletes whose bodies have developed a little more quickly than their peers, the enhanced training will generate increased lean muscle mass and lower body fat with relatively low risk of injury.
Any young adult with on-line access can obtain virtually any professional athlete’s training program. Also readily available to them are countless nutritional programs, some designed specifically for the sport they are most interested in.
These programs won’t turn the average teenager into Lebron James or Andrew Luck, but they will motivate them to investigate further how they can change their fitness style to achieve greater results on the playing field.
But is unsupervised teen training the most effective, most reliable method to achieve improved results?
