The one that has the most carry over to your sport.
Improve hip strength, as well as hip and ankle ROM. That's where I would start.
At 15 years old, it is unlikely you have tightness in your ankles. More likely you need to improve your strength and stability.
Read the book, be able to answer all the practice questions, pass test.
I hope this sheds some light onto why it's so crucial for young athletes to build their strength before worrying about plyometrics and speed training.
I think you need to do more research.
You should replace the word affordable with valuable.
Kyle has given an eBook worth of information for you and you're still worried about cost per session? You can either afford training or you...
I agree with Kyle - most good trainers wouldn't take you up on that deal. It takes weeks/months to make any progress. If you come in once every other week, I spend the hour teaching you the same...
Strengthen the end range of motion of your hip flexors.
Are you trolling? The guy's femur is about a foot longer than his torso and about two feet longer than his lower leg.

What benefit does pulling a deadlift from 8.75in off the floor offer that 9.75in doesn't? Maybe he should pull from 7.75in off the floor to really maximize his...

I haven't watched the video yet, but here is another good discussion on the topic.
Free rarely pays off in the long run. You will devalue yourself.
You could offer a free trial to get people interested and then sell them after they get an idea of what you can offer. If you go...
I'm pretty much in a straight power phase now - basically all sets will be in the 60-85% range. Video of deadlifts on my Instagram page.
1a. Hex Deadlifts 3x3 (155kg)
1b. Vertical Jump...
1. Deadlift - worked up to 405lb, but lack of sleep has caught up to me. Decided to cut my losses rather than grind through a few heavy sets.
2. Bench Press 4x5 (205lb)
3. Sled Row...
1a. Squat 3x3 @75% (305lb). Focused on a deliberate 3:1:0 temp.
1b. Vertical Jump 3x0.5in drop off (do as many jump as possible before dropping 0.5in off of best jump of that set, with a...
I think shorts/pants and a nice t-shirt, like a Nike drifit, is a good combo of professionalism and comfort. Wearing a polo looks silly to me, while wearing something you workout in looks too...
Squeezed in a quick one between clients today.
1a. Sumo Deadlift 4x5 @ 275lb
1b. Bench Press 4x8 @ 185lb
Going down - protract and upward rotate
Rowing in - Retract and downward rotate
You shouldn't be concerned with depressing or elevating your shoulders.
