Time Block H - Saturday, 2:50-4:40pm
Presented by: Vincent Carvelli
Session Format: Lecture

This presentation will offer a perspective that will challenge many practices and theories associated with resistance training exercises and potential risks as they relate to the adolescent exerciser. We’ll discuss the most common and accepted exercise theories, rules and guidelines for this population. Other topics of interest, such as adolescent sport-specific training, testing, practice of full range of motion exercise, functional training and standardized fitness assessments, will be discussed.
