Physical Qualities Two - Youth Physical Development Model

This video is part four of the Youth Physical Development Model, a UK Coaching and Sport Scotland animation bringing to life the evidence based 'Youth Physical Development Model', and what it means for the development of 'Fundamental Movement Skills'

UK Coaching was formerly known as Sports Coach UK. We changed our name after expanding our support as an organisation. We’re now taking it wider than traditional sports because great coaching goes much, much further.

This video focuses on the importance of strength training at all stages of development. Strength is a key component to building other physical qualities, fundamental movement skills and helps to prevent injury, regardless of gender. The video explains how strength training should be prioritised over endurance-based activities, particularly in the earlier stages of a person’s development.
