Last week we tested or more exactly competed in the Upper Body Triathlon. We tested Jungle Gym Pull-ups, Dips and Push-ups. The winner was determined by the player who got the highest number of total reps. Great spirit and good competition. These kids have been training since June. They have done a superb job and shown great improvement. We are now starting our Get Fast phase, more emphasis on speed development now that we have a good base of Foundational Strength. This is a good high school program with coaches who get it, very much like the Venice Volleyball program, the kids are disciplined and held to a standard of behavior. That is a prerequisite for any program I work with.
This epitomizes the weight room without walls concept. All out training is done at the baseball complex in a covered batting cage or the grass with sandbags, jungle gyms, and dumbbells.
