Chalk Talk – Episode 3: Teaching Strength

Every athlete wants to be able to lift heavy and “move weight”. The draw to strength and conditioning for most high school athletes lives in the numbers. 

As coaches and teachers, the value we place on form, technique, and movement is paramount to any sexy amount of weight put on the bar. Coach Sam Breslin and Colin Reno talk about focusing on movement mechanics and seeing strength develop as a direct result.
