"Perhaps the most common question I get from coaches and parents is “how do I get my son or daughter faster/quicker/jump higher?” They are often surprised by my response, as well as what I am about to discuss in today’s article. My answer is typically “get them stronger” and that is usually met with a look of confusion, so I elaborate. In the past, I’ve written about the values of squatting through a larger range of motion than simply to 90 degrees, I explained in greater detail how strength is undeniably effective at developing speed, quickness and vertical jump height in athletes, especially young ones. What I did not discuss was the next part of my answer to that question."

Since our challenge was to get more vitamin D this week- here’s a really helpful tip. If you decide to supplement with vitamin D3, consider also taking vitamin K. This helps with absorption and the two should go hand in hand. The good news is that many manufactures sell the combo in one supplement. Look for vitamin D3 with K2.
