Our Teen Strong – Strength & Conditioning Program is a CrossFit based training program designed for 12 – 16 year-olds. This program is appropriate for boys and girls of all athletic and fitness abilities who are motivated to improve their general physical fitness, especially strength, speed, and endurance. Diablo’s Teen Strong program begins and ends with a physical test of strength and fitness in order to provide a record of every athlete’s performance improvements.
Teen Strong participants will be educated on the barbell lifts (Squats, Deadlifts, & Presses), the Olympic lifts (Clean & Jerk & the Snatch), and many gymnastic movements (Pull Ups, Rope Climbs, Ring Dips). No experience is necessary for this program. If your child is participating in organized sports, many of the lifts and gymnastic movements are the same ones that they will be exposed to in high school and beyond. Diablo’s Teen Strong provides a solid technical foundation for those later years.
Proper technique is CRITICAL to gaining strength & power in addition to avoiding injury. Our Coaches are extensively trained and experienced in all the barbell lifts. No one will be pushed beyond their capacity – and increases in weight will only be allowed under the supervision and instruction of a coach.
