Abstract

Youth physical development training has grown increasingly popular and research predominately indicates it is beneficial for youth physical development. however, controversy remains regarding the type and intensity of training that should be promoted due to the complexities associated with training across various levels of development. one purpose of this article is to address performance and healthrelated benefits training (i.e., strength, endurance and power) in youth from a broadly defined musculoskeletal fitness perspective. a second purpose was to promote and link resistance training language and its applications from a developmental perspective.
