Gaining or Losing Weight

Responsible Weight Gain for Young Athletes?!

Responsible weight gain, sounds funny, but it is a serious problem especially with junior and senior high school athletes.

I was recently asked this question from one of our newsletter subscribers and I see the problem all the time.
Weight gain for most of us is not in the plans, however for our athletes, it is very important for their performance as well as survival. Athletes often want to get bigger and too many of them feel they can eat what they want and still grow. They can grow, however the objective should be to add muscle not body fat.
