Load Management (In Sport, Work, and Life)


All the stars in the NBA are getting hurt. This comes off the coattails of a hyper-condensed season because of COVID-19, followed by a  shortened off-season that led directly into another condensed season.  The injuries, many of which are classic overuse issues, aren’t a  coincidence. They are the result of lots of stress, not enough rest. In this episode of the Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve are joined by Coach Jojo to discuss the concept of “load management” and how it applies not only to high-level athletes but to all of us. As a bonus, they debate whether Lebron James is underpaid or if it’s just that top CEOs are overpaid (or both).
