Kids and Teens Get Huge Benefits From Our 8-Week Strength & Conditioning Program

It’s no secret: Strength and conditioning training help kids and teens improve their health and fitness, but that’s not all! This type of training has proven results to:

  • Reduce and prevent injuries
  • Improve confidence
  • Enhance athletic performance

We’ve designed our program specifically for middle school and high school athletes, to improve strength, power, speed, and agility. We start with the fundamentals, build on the basics, and help our athletes become more versatile and dynamic through evidence-based performance programming. Plus, student athletes looking to compete at the collegiate level get a head-start on required movements (e.g., power clean, squat, deadlift and bench press), strength, and conditioning.


In eight weeks of strength and conditioning training, our program helps youth athletes develop:

  • Body awareness
  • Flexibility, mobility, and agility
  • Posterior chain strength
  • Unilateral strength and stability
  • Core strength (essential for injury prevention)

And, along with developing our athletes’ physical capabilities, we also spend time educating them on proper nutrition – how to fuel their bodies for performance. This includes teaching them how to:

  • Eat balanced meals throughout the day
  • Stay hydrated for health and performance
  • Choose nutrient-dense foods to fuel their movements
  • Make the best choices to fuel their bodies for training and competition

CBSN’s youth strength and conditioning programs follow research-backed, scientifically proven principles:

  1. Ground-based movements: Performed with the athlete’s feet on the ground with the objective of generating greater force to increase power and speed.
  2. Olympic weightlifting: A ground-based barbell sport, olympic weightlifting is used across multiple sports (from varsity to collegiate and professional levels) to increase performance. By learning the proper technique for the clean-and-jerk and snatch in our program, student athletes will improve their chances of success in other sport programs.
  3. Three-dimensional movements: Sport performance requires athletes to be skilled in moving in three planes: side-to-side, forward and back, and up and down. With the use of free weights and controlled technique work, we help young athletes build the strength and stability to succeed.
  4. Multiple joint movements: Exercises that work more than one joint at a time, benefiting athletes by working multiple systems in the body in a single movement.
  5. Explosive movements: Helping athletes develop the fast-twitch muscle fibers to succeed in sports that require explosive speed and strength (e.g., football, soccer, basketball, and wrestling) through plyometrics, olympic weightlifting, medicine ball drills, and more.
