Resistance Training For Youth – The Barbell Life 408

This week on The Barbell Life Podcast, we delve into our revamped perspective on Resistance Training for Youth. We begin by summarizing our previously discussed stance and then present our updated viewpoint, backed by the latest research and our extensive coaching experience with thousands of youth over the last two decades.
