Summary: Even if your child is focused on only one sport, there can be benefits of cross-training as well.If you have a child who plays sports, and is very good at one specific sport, he or she (and you) may have dreams of a future career involving athletics. Wouldn't that be nice? The problem is that truly superior athletes tend to train a little too much for their one specific sport. This can not only hurt their ability to play their sport, but it can also cause real injury that could derail those dreams of a future career. Melanie Cole, MS, and Dr. Mike Bergeron, PhD, guide you and your student athlete to great heights of training with the best expert advice on cross training... even for a specific sport.
