If today's kids are our future, shouldn't we be preparing them in a way that is beneficial to them and our economy? If we keep teaching them in the same old ways, how will we see change? KidToPro is utilizing the expanding field of web development to help the kids of Minneapolis grow professionally.

And now we've opened up our application to Minneapolis students! 10 weeks of coding practice - in the classroom and in web devolopment projects. Students will learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Ruby under the supervision of experienced volunteers. While they learn they will be given real-life practice by fulfilling contracts for businesses in need of web development. They will complete these projects in teams, each contributing from their own skill set to better mimic real life.

I began adding the 5/5 cadence method for weightlifting into my training routine - cutting the number of sets I need to do while keeping intensity and seeing huge strength gains along with the bonus of great muscle definition from building muscle. I highly recommend it! Check out my blog post on the technique and it's benefits.
