    227: Game speed (with Dean Benton)

    37:35

    Developing faster athletes for team sports doesn't just mean training them like sprinters. Both sports require fast athletes, but in completely different contexts. Like anything, developing speed in a new context comes down to how you train and Dean Benton has spent his career trying to unlock the methods that can make his teams play faster. On this week's GAINcast he joins us to share to discuss the significance of speed, how he defines the key elements of team speed, and his approach to developing game speed.

On this week's GAINcast we look at how the modern approach to injury prevention might actually be making things worse, and propose some new ideas for reducing injury rates.
