The four honorees have shaped the life of the Bakersfield community and have served as mentors to many. • Caren Floyd has advanced the education of young people for more than 40 years, including six years as vice principal and seven years as principal. Her commitment to education and learning have continued in the capacities of Sunday School teacher for over 25 years and former education council chairwoman at her church, co-chairwoman of the NAACP Education Committee, and chairwoman of the National Day of Literacy, sponsored by the African American Read-In Committee.

When should young athletes begin lifting gym weights?

T

his is a question that just about every parent has asked. Most teenage boys can’t wait to lift weights. Most teenage female athletes are afraid of lifting weights. Both could benefit from it, but where does the “weight” come from? Every athlete has a certain level of strength. And when we lift weights, we are really just trying to improve strength. But what most parents, coaches and kids fail to realize is that they don’t have to be in a gym to “lift weight.” And even worse, most high school athletes have such poor technique, posture and form, that they should not be lifting weights. So what dictates when and how much weight an athlete should be using? The single most important factor to deciding when an athlete should lift weights is their technical ability — in other words, their form. All kids have a certain level of strength. If they didn’t, they’d be

lying on the couch doing nothing — is it any surprise that so many of our kids are weaker and less athletic than ever? But by getting up and moving, running, jumping, climbing, pushing and other fun stuff, kids get stronger without having to actually lift weights in a gym. We start all athletes with a body weight based training program. They have to demonstrate that they can do a squat with excellent posture, do a pushup all the way to the ground and do a chin-up. Columnist Do they have proper standing posture? Are their shoulders back and their chests out? Do their hands turn inward? Are their Please turn to WEIGHTS / 2

CONTINUED FROM 2 butts tucked under them or are their hips rolled forward too far? Once they get to the point that these criteria have been met, then we’ll progress them to lifting weights. Want your kids to get a bit stronger? Have them help you do yard work: dig holes, move wheel barrows and carry buckets of dirt around. Enough of the sledge hammer swinging, or tire flipping junk at the gym. That stuff is called work. We don’t go to training gyms to do yard work, we go there to learn and develop the skills to get faster. Yard work will get a person into decent shape. But it should not be seen as “athletic performance training.” The short answer to the short question, (should kids be lifting weights?) is “yes,” if they are “qualified” by meeting postural, bodyweight strength and technical criteria. Many don’t. But at some point, they have to be introduced to weight lifting if they are to continue getting stronger. And the perfect place to do that is through our “Summer Speed, Strength and Power Camp.” We’ve got a great program and

Here’s what one parent of a 12-year-old soccer player had to say: “It’s great how you focus on the basics. Starting from the athletic position and then progressing to more advanced skills. This program was great for my daughter!” We’re taking sign-ups for our camp now.
