You'll get tons of drills from some of the biggest names in sprint coaching history, all of which are designed to help you churn out championship sprinters year after year.

Creating a Dynamic Warm Up

Creating a strong dynamic warm up is the foundation of great sprinting practices. In the video's opening segment, Monte Stratton takes viewers through U.S. Olympian Doc Patton's dynamic warm up, beginning with ground drills and leg swings to improve range of motion. From there, Lance Brauman demonstrates a variety of skip drills, providing insights on what coaches should cue and look for with their athletes. Also in this segment, Baylor's legendary Clyde Hart shares his views on adding hard strides and sprints to the end of the warm up to help further prepare the body for high intensity efforts.

Developing a Powerful Start

A powerful aggressive start can make the difference between winning and losing a race. In this part of the video, Maurice Wilson takes you through his pre-block work routine, demonstrating how to help athletes create powerful starts before they step into the blocks. This segment includes a variety of coach-assisted drills and various starting positions, including falling, two, and four point starts.

Coach Stratton discusses proper block set ups and body position to maximize an athlete's explosive push from the pedals. At the end of the segment, Brian Fitzgerald also discusses how to set blocks up on the curve, to help athletes run an effective race in the 200 and 400 meters.

Proper Sprint Form

Throughout the video, coaches continuously share their views on proper sprint form and technique. Texas A&M's Pat Henry uses the wicket drill and an acceleration drill to discuss proper body positions in both the acceleration and max velocity phases of running. He breaks down various cues and body positions that coaches should look for, as well as ways to cue the athletes into proper alignment. Also in this segment, Dana Boone shows a variety of postural drills, including sprinting while jumping rope to promote proper cycling of the legs.

This video is full of drills and insights from top level coaches. However, one particular drill that stands out is Coach Hart's 'Event 300' drill. In this drill, Hart has an athlete run segments against a timer to help promote proper rhythm and energy expenditure during the first 300 meters of the 400 meter race. While the drill is great, Coach Hart's excellent break down of specific efforts in each phase of the run is what makes this exercise so effective.

If you can only buy one video on sprinting this year, this one is the way to go. It's packed with numerous drills, tips, and insights from some of the world's best coaches and should be a staple in any respected track & field coach's library.

Don Babbitt is certainly one of the most accomplished throws coaches in the world, having coached 29 NCAA Champions and 53 athletes who have competed at the Olympics and World Championships. The University of Georgia Associate Head Coach simply knows what it takes to build dominant throwers.

This video featuring Coach Babbitt will give you a logical progression that you can use to turn your discus throwers into the best version of themselves. You'll get tips on how to grip and release the discus, as well as a series of drills that build from individual portions of the throw into the full form to ensure your throwers utilize the best technique for maximum distance.

Discus Progression

Babbitt begins by concentrating on how to hold and release the discus. He and featured demonstrator Denzel Comenentia (the 2019 NCAA First Team Outdoor All-American in the discus) take their time detailing what to look for to achieve the perfect grip. Once athletes get the grip down, they can move on to techniques like bowling the discus and releasing in the air to develop the feel for a well-thrown discus.

Next, you'll see drills that add piece-by-piece to the throwing motion until athletes have built up to a full throw. Drills include:

  • Front Throw
  • Stand Throw
  • Double Pivot Drill
  • 180 Degree Drill
  • Step-In Drill
  • South African
  • 90-180-270-360 Degree Progression
  • Full Turn to Power Position
  • Full Throw

Rounding out the drill work portion of the video is Coach Babbitt's approach to the footwork wrap, which helps athletes work on the timing of moving their feet while throwing as well as getting their sweep leg out far enough.

Discus Theory

The final 10 minutes of Babbitt's presentation includes his thoughts on the biomechanics, orbital path, and acceleration pattern of the discus. Coaches who want to base their training on science and analytics will appreciate Coach Babbitt's whiteboard breakdown because he gets into the data that has helped him churn out champion throwers on a yearly basis.

Strength Training for Distance Runners

with Jake Moore;
DPT; APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor;
Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coach Certified,
Physical Therapist/Strength and Conditioning Coach, Gilbert (IA) High School;
USA Weightlifting Club Coach

Strength training plays an important role in running economy, anaerobic power, and race times. Numerous studies have shown that strength training develops power that leads to running faster.

Jake Moore has developed a strength training program that helps athletes run faster, decreases injury risk, and allows for quicker recovery from workouts. This allows the athlete to train at a high level daily with less fatigue. Moore's training program challenges athletes to hold proper technique and body posture longer to enhance strength and power at max speed.

Core and Lateral Hip Stability

Coach Moore begins by explaining why it's necessary for distance athletes to train for strength and explosiveness. Moore, along with athlete demonstrations, present his preferred core and lateral hip stability routine. Each exercise is demonstrated with proper technique as explanation of coaching points and athlete cues are given. Additionally, bounding and low impact plyometric exercises are demonstrated that help develop power, which correlates to faster running times.

Strength Training Lifts and Flexibility Program

Next, Moore covers several traditional lifts that he uses with his athletes in the weight room. Many of these exercises involve the athlete training the extension of the posterior chain, which correlates very closely to running speed.

Finally, Moore demonstrates the flexibility program he utilizes with his athletes that helps improve their running performance, addresses any deficiencies in flexibility the athletes may have, and helps aid in injury prevention.

This video from Coach Moore includes numerous drills that can be used to teach movement skills, strength, power, speed, and endurance. These exercises are essential in training athletes to run at a lower percent of max effort in order to run longer and faster. If you're a track or cross country coach, this video is sure to give you an edge over your competition!

"One of the most comprehensive strength and power training videos that I have viewed in a very long time. Coach Moore covers just about all the bases from the importance of strength training, its benefits and how to implement specific protocols to attain better ground contact forces, body alignment and improved track times. He does an outstanding job breaking down body segments and giving specifics on how to improve each of these areas. One of the most overlooked areas are the hips - both flexors and extensors - for any strength protocol and coach; Moore gives very nuanced explanations on how to improve this area using plyometrics and some innovative exercises like the use of a four wheeled scooter. Perhaps one of the best pieces of advice on this video is the fact that strength and power training are a year - round / season long regime that should eventually become a lifelong activity for the athlete once he or she has stopped competitive training. Really enjoyed watching and learning from this video - fast paced and comprehensive. A must for all high school school sports programs." - Customer Review
