Has your child struggled to improve their BMX performance? Are you just racing race after race and practice after practice with no real improvements?
This is so common in BMX and youth sports in general. The problem isn’t that they need more practice or better parts on their bikes. Through practice, they have become very good at the sport itself but have neglected the basic general athletic skills it takes to be a good athlete. Kind of like when you see a rider that has the gift of having a ton of power but no real bike handling skills. Or you could have the opposite of that with a rider that is immensely skilled but little power to his pedals.
Unfortunately, kids are more sedentary than ever. They have fewer gym classes per week, less recess time, and when they get home they don’t play outside nearly as much as the generations of kids before did.
So while we were outside climbing trees, running, playing basketball with friends. Our kids are sitting on a chair watching YouTube videos.
In BMX, we have coaches that primarily coach and put out great information for older, higher level racers. But there is not much good information out there for the younger BMXers.
Having a child of my own, coaching PE at a small private school, and running a young athletes program at my own gym has taught me a few things about working with kids.
They are not mini-adults. Those things that the older experts and pros are doing for training is NOT what your children should be doing. We may get to the point of doing those things for training, but first, they need to work on all the general skills to ensure development now and in the future.
There are sweet spots in childhood athletic development that if you miss, you may never fully develop those skills. So while a child is sitting down watching YouTube videos, they are missing out on that sweet spot of developing skills like balance, rhythm, hand-eye coordination, judging distance, and basic agility.
Oh yeah, and kids get bored quickly. You have to keep things moving. They don’t do well when you have them do 5 sets of 8 reps. They like to be challenged often in many different ways… exactly the way they are supposed to develop.
BUILDING THE ULTIMATE YOUNG BMX ATHLETE is a program with the progression of skills in mind. Kids that are for example 6 will be working on something different than kids that are 13. But, by first starting your 13-year-old on the beginner exercises, you can ensure that they have acquired the basic strength and skills needed for higher athletic performance.
The cool part of the program is that each level has a new set of skills that I introduce. Then the next level, they work on mastering those skills as I introduce the next set of higher level skills. Kids get bored and frustrated when you introduce skills that are either too easy or too advanced for their age.
It’s my belief that kids that build these general skills will have greater potential in BMX and/or any other sport they choose to pursue. This isn't just a belief, but there is growing research that proves that the majority of professional athletes were multi-sport athletes.
I want to reiterate that children are not mini-adults. For their health and their future development, they need a big volume of various stimulus to achieve peak performance later in life. My program BUILDING THE ULTIMATE YOUNG BMX ATHLETE is my attempt at teaching them skills, building power, developing their endurance in a healthy way, and improving coordination and agility.
If their progress in BMX has become stagnate or they are ready to jump to the next level... give BUILDING THE ULTIMATE YOUNG BMX ATHLETE a try!
I promise you won't be disappointed.
