Discover the key components of unlocking athletic potential to empower a high school athlete’s performance.

Tune in as John and Tex take you through the necessary steps to building a weight training program for a high school strength coach, what to test instead of 1’s, and the key components of unlocking athletic potential to empower a high school athlete’s performance.
