This project is for my amazing Track student-athletes The project will supply the team with training equipment such as hurdles, plyo box, and medicine weighted balls. The school has recently lost all its funding for any Sports-related activity. Also, the fitness room has been recently removed. Additionally, obtaining this equipment will provide every athlete with the ability to practice together as a team. Strength training has become an integral part of an athlete’s training regimen. Incorporating a PLYO box into your exercise routine helps you to develop the power to suddenly and quickly exert force. The increase in power and speed when using a PLYO box leads to improved muscular strength in your upper and lower body. Implementing a plyo box is an overall great way to increase upper and lower body strength and stability for anyone. As we suggested previously, plyo box exercises can help increase stability, train fast-twitch muscles, and improve mobility. They improve three key fitness factors—speed, agility, and quickness—in addition to strengthening your joints, ligaments, and tendons. Incorporating agility ladder workouts into your fitness routine is also great for improving brain health!
Strength training for young athletes supports optimal mobility, stability, coordination, strength, and movement efficiency.
One of the greatest benefits of strength training for young athletes is the impact on self-esteem and self-confidence. Studies have shown an increase in a positive self-image with regular strength training. The rigors of a strength program, within reason, help a young athlete gain focus, attention, and dedication.
