In the 28th episode of the THIRST For More Podcast, Brandon sits down and records a solo podcast episode on the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) Model for athletes. Brandon is incredibly passionate about helping youth athletes develop to be the best versions of themselves, both on and off the field. Brandon discusses how approaching this model, in today’s era of sport specialization and increasing overuse injuries, could help develop better athletes long term, while also preventing injuries, burnout, and the increasing health risks we see with children.
