THP - Development Program Progress Update


It makes me happy to see the progress of the young athletes that have been training hard of a morning. They are all good kids and listen to everything I speak to them about in the gym.

This is Bryce Shaw hitting 135 kg for 2 on the deadlift. We still have a lot of technical issues to fix up but the progress from day 1 to this point is crazy. He has a lot more strength potential but we just have to address some weak points and cues to stay tighter throughout the lift. The good thing is this lift was far from maximal but gave me a good indication of what we need to work on.

If you are training younger athletes don't let your ego or excitement get in the way of their long term progress. We will regress from this point to fix up issues and the hopefully Bryce can hit 135 kg with perfect technique next time. You don't have to chase weight to progress.
