Jon Bruney-Training The Younger Athlete-#261Eric welcomes professional strongman and motivational speaker Jon Bruney to Motivation and Muscle. Eric and John address the growing need to find a good trainer for the younger athlete and why this has become a daunting process. We talk about building the foundation for the younger athlete and why this is so important to their success. In many instances this is not taught and it will create injuries, surgeries or even the young athlete quitting their given sport. It’s so important for the trainer to be a teacher, a goal creator for that student and most of all to be able to convey their knowledge back to that student to create and carry out their goals. As a young athlete you have to really decide what your motives are and is this what you want to do and not what the others around you want. Motivation is a very strong feeling and it must be met with a solid direct plan carried out with precision. We explore what exercises work with different sports and how this notion that downloading this particular program or creating an assembly line of athletes(one size fits all) has a high failure rate. For any of our listeners who have children this podcast will answer many of the questions on your mind. Jon and I map it out for you. This will help you as a parent to make an educated decision for your children. The Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Connects Your Brain To Your Brawn. Enjoy!
