Where to start… Youth (?) not! Your talking old school maybe junior/ senior in high school workouts using what sounds like old school free wts.. Youth don’t have the strength due to many factors and should be focusing on neuromuscular patterns. They don’t get the strength gains your emphasing until usually 16-17+ when muscle strength and hypertrophy can kick in and it sounds like your talking single plane and axis of movement patterns. Multi plane/ axis movement and activities along with deceleration to acceleration sequencing for overall multi sports are what ‘s neede for youth. With youth it’s the neural system that is the key as strength is extremely limited due to bodies not ready for the strength you’re talking about here.
Just like that of the you guys are only focusing on that of the muscle aspect. So to me you are saying if they didn’t have crazy strength then these guys who are hall of fame athletes would just be a regular and shouldn’t be recognized. What about the other stuff like IQ, hand eye coordination, the ability to locate a speeding fast ball in order to hit it, or even the ability to throw a curve ball, all things that go along with it. Muscles without talent behind it that’s just like taking the drugs but not putting the effort to making the drugs useful. That would make them a regular athlete, but stronger, in that case they can body build but even that takes a lot of effort.
