Rob Bousquet asks
I took the CrossFit Football Cert in Savannah, Ga a few weeks ago. I have a question about using this programming for a few travel baseball teams’ out of season conditioning. The thing with these teams are, they have players that range from 9 years old to 14 years old. Mostly 9-10 year olds. Based on the seminar conversations we don’t do much weight training with them that young. what would you do with them besides running them through games like dodgeball or whatever? Would program workouts using jumping, kettlebells, slam balls, just stay away from anything heavy?
Thank you for any input you have on the topic.
