Stretching, core strength, daily routine, weight lifting and philosophy comprise the outline for this DVD on middle distance running. The yoga-style stretching routine requires a straight back and includes angle stretches. Every possible muscle set, including the glutes, groin, and hamstring, is addressed in this program. Twice a week an abdominal routine follows the stretching program. This core strength program is an important part of training middle distance runners. Exercises include flickers, legs over head, crunchers, crisscross, leg lifters, switchers, arch the back, squigglies, on your side, robbios, leg lifters, morgios, Dieter Baumanns' and push-ups. Next, Coach Tyson illustrates drills for developing runners. The Oregon Pacing drill requires runners to exhibit three different strides for 80 yards each. Players run tall, work on stride and are barefoot. This drill gives the coach a great chance to evaluate the technique of each runner. Another favorite is the Oregon sprint, float, sprint drill. This drill trains runners to finish strong. The 1600 Meter drill is a great drill to simulate race situation or as a cross country tune up. Tyson introduces a drill that athletes can use to challenge the 4-minute mile called the 30/30 drill. 65 minutes. 2007. DVD.
