12 Explosive Medicine Ball Exercises (Training Boys & Girls Together)

I’ve heard it and so have you: “In youth and high school programs you have to train boys and girls differently, and you shouldn’t have them working together”.


In 2010 I’ll hit 10 years of being apart of this industry. I can honestly tell you I’ve never been in or created a situation there we needed to separate boys and girls. Different goals and considerations? Sometimes you run into that. But to think that just because she’s a girl and he’s a boy they can’t be in the same room is crazy, let alone a terrible usage of time and discriminating.

The only people who think there’s a difference is you – not them. If athletes bring it up it’s because someone has put the thought in their head.

Print out the PDF below and watch this video. I briefly squash the idea of separation and why poor perspective is usually the driver behind this misconception. You’ll also see 12 exercises we use when training boys AND girls. Take special note of the intent to work hard and get better.

The video explains it all so watch the whole thing. When you’re done, leave a comment below.

    Thanks for passing this on to me. You make some valid points that will help in my article about the differences between males and females regarding speed training.

    Glad you got something from the video. Seems like if the parents ask about the differences, they already have a perceived notion things are or have to be different. If they don’t ask, it’s not something I arbitrarily bring up (not to avoid, but it’s not something that I think about).


  5. Inspiring information on improving my athletic performance!
