Randy Leslie is enthusiastic about his future. As a star high school athlete, he excelled and was looking forward to his first year playing college football. There was one problem, however. “The coaching staff had sent out a packet filled with workouts containing lifts I didn’t know existed,” said Leslie. He was overwhelmed and unsure about attempting the workouts on his own. He turned to online instructional videos on YouTube hoping they might help, but they didn’t. “Consequently,” Leslie says, “my form suffered and I was not seeing results.”
