Child To Champion: Dr. Mike Young’s Presentation Overviews

mike young athletic lab

With the Child To Champion LTAD Conference fast approaching Dr. Mike Young has confirmed the details for his three presentations across the weekend. Having spent a lot of time with Mike last year during his workshop, talking about training and listening to his presentations and practicals I am really excited about this next set of presentations he is delivering. You can check out the overviews below:



Velocity Based Training Theory & Practical (Friday)

Recent developments in technology have permitted easier use of velocity based training methods. This has allowed us to add new metrics such as peak and average velocity and power outputs to our training and testing measurements. In this hands-on lecture, Dr. Young will present on the 4 primary benefits of using velocity based training and give practical applications to incorporate velocity based metrics in to your training and testing. He will discuss best practices for data management, training and testing logistics, and how to incorporate velocity based training in to training on a daily basis to monitor physical readiness and auto-regulate training.


Best Practices for Developing Speed Across  the Developmental Continuum (Saturday)

Speed is a critical component to practically every sport and you can never be too fast. In this lecture, Dr. Young will present on how to best develop speed across the developmental continuum from youth all the way up through elite and professional. The lecture will delve in to the neuromechanics of speed and how different physical capacities should have varying roles of importance over the course of an athlete’s long term speed development training. Dr. Young will pull from his experience of working with both developmental and elite athletes in individual (athletics, bobsleigh) and team (soccer, rugby, American football) settings.


Advanced Techniques for Developing Elite Strength & Power (Sunday)

This presentation will focus on advanced means and methods to help your athletes reach their full potential. The lecture will cater to athletes on the more advanced and mature side of the LTAD continuum who are looking for the final pieces of the training puzzle to reach the next step in performance. Dr. Young will provide examples and techniques he has used with his elite athletes to maximize strength and power.
