Mash Mafia Youth – The Barbell Life 210

I’ve trained all manner of athletes from average Joes to NFL athletes to champion powerlifters and weightlifters. But my favorite athletes to train are the youth.

And right now the Mash Mafia is blessed to be working with some amazing young athletes – from 9 year old girls to our 14 year old stud who just took the gold medal at the Youth Pan Ams.

I get a little frustrated… no, I get plain angry when I see how many people train youth. They get it all wrong. They think they’re being helpful, but they’re not. So on this podcast we get into the right way to train youth.

And we also talk a lot about how we prepare our athletes – even the young ones – for competition. We get into everything on this podcast from our taper process to backroom strategies.
