The LTAD model is a foundation for an optimal training, competition and post competition/ recovery for athletes training at every level. There are 6 steps to this training model, but today we are going to talk about step V.
LTAD model stage V: Train To Win.
Stage V is for boys ages 18+ and girls ages 17+. Here at stage V, Athletes are maximizing fitness preparation and sport specific skills. The things athletes are to, or have already accomplished follow. First off the athlete’s personal, mental, physical, technical and tactical lifestyle capabilities are now fully established, so they are now shooting for maximal and optimal performance They are well equipped to achieve this because of their training of the LTAD model throughout the years. Training of these athletes are particular to weight and volume due to the possibility of overtraining. The athletes are still training for their sports specifically.
All in all, training with the LTAD model reaps multiple benefits. For example, there are higher sporting achievements due to the planned out training style based on an athletes age. Another is less possibility of a burnout because of the diversity and versatility LTAD in training methods has to offer, especially at a young age.
