I recently wrote an article for Starting Strength about our young high school dancer who is finishing her junior year. Her dancing has improved tremendously since beginning her novice progression. She was able to come back from a foot injury faster than she would have had she not been lifting and training with us. She trains all the lifts, including the power clean. She does push ups. She does chin ups. She is stronger and more confident.
I will let her story speak for itself.
