With an easy to follow step-by-step approach to hurdle training, Lawrence Johnson introduces you to a vast series of high level training disciplines for your hurdlers. This is one of the largest collections of easy to follow training drills on the market for both beginning and advanced hurdle coaches.
Opening with the Clemson University hurdle weight program, Coach Johnson shows you specific weight and plyometric drills to help strengthen your sprinters and hurdlers and explains why each drill is used and how to implement it into your season. You will see the Glute/Hamstring Series, the Vertical Integration Series of plyometric exercises, on the track hurdle drills, medicine ball drills, and finally the Olympic Lift Series of strength training exercises.
On the track, Coach Johnson demonstrates a series of Dynamic Warm-Up exercises including an 800m system of technique runs and skips. In all, Johnson and his hurdlers demonstrate over a dozen different drills your hurdlers can use--from beginners to veterans--to improve form, speed, develop flexibility and core strength. He provides coaching points and cues to help you provide feedback to your athletes and help correct common flaws and/or weaknesses.
Johnson closes with technique and drill instruction that covers the hurdle event from start to finish. You will see Start Drills, Block Set-Up, Reaction Drills, Velocity Drills, Rhythm Endurance and Finishing Techniques that will make your athletes better hurdlers.
Let Coach Johnson help you establish a plan for coaching the hurdles throughout your season!
