Mind Dump Monday 004 – Long-Term Athlete Development Model


This is the Mind Dump Monday for this week on Long-Term Athlete Development and using Cycling Canada’s LTAD for track cycling. The framework is posted below for you to follow along with.

LTAD hours

It’s a long one, but jam-packed with quality information! I’ve broken it down into 3 parts. In Part 1 I introduce the LTAD framework and the first two categories of an Active Start and the FUNdamentals.

In Part 2, we look at Learning 2 Train and move through to Training 2 Compete.

Finally in Part 3, we move from Learning 2 Win to Training 2 Win and then touch on Retirement or Active 4 Life.

Grab the note pad, write down your thoughts, ideas, feelings, then post them below. I would love to hear your thoughts and questions.

As always, if you like this series, please Like and Share it!!

Happy Holidays from Speed Mechanics!!
