03 Dec Brenden Meyer
Brenden Meyer (10 yr old) has been on a bit of a tear this fall.
In 7 games he has scored 18 goals along with 9 assists!!!!
Over 4 wks this summer he took his deadlift from 35 lbs for 5 to 100 lbs x5. Took 1 sec. off his 20 yd dash and nearly doubled or tripled his strength in all his major lifts.
Many parents wait till high school before allowing athletes to lift weights even though it has been proven over and over through scientific studies – weight training in adolescents has nothing butbenefits down the road. Allowing your son or daughter to get bigger, stronger and faster prior to high school is the best way to ensure their success and safely build self-esteem and a great work ethic that will last a lifetime.
