Thanks for tuning in for our first youth training program!
This program focuses on single and double leg jumps. The strength block will focus on being able to maintain tension in your body during the exercises.
The introduction of a pause will increase your time under tension and challenge your ability to sustain a held position.
The program is designed to be done 1x per week. Follow along with the video above, and most importantly, have fun!
