with Brian Fitzgerald,
Rio Mesa HS (CA) Head Track Coach

This excellent program covers speed, sprint mechanics, warm-up and drills, starts, acceleration mechanics, training and seasonal planning. Speed is defined as the product of stride length and stride frequency; Fitzgerald works to improve both variables in his program. He demonstrates bounding exercises that can increase strength through plyometrics. Sprint mechanics include posture, arm action, stretch reflex and leg action. Warming up, important to sprinters, is presented via drills and aerobic conditioning exercises. Many excellent start and acceleration drills are also included. Sprint training is the heart of this presentation and begins with repetition training. Key components are specific distance in specified time, recovery time and distance. Various examples of repetition training are illustrated. Also included are high lactate training and peak speed training. The seasonal plan includes designing a calendar, which is divided into four phases: pre-competition, early competition, competitive and championship. 58 minutes. 2007. DVD.
