Wichita State University Coach Heidi Yost along with Wichita State University Heptathlon Champion Tanya Friesen demonstrate the drills that are needed to develop speed, power, and explosiveness in the long jump. Yost and Friesen present a step-by-step progression of the series of drills needed in each phase of the long jump: warm-up drills, sprint mechanics drills, build-up drills, sprinting drills, approach drills, takeoff drills, and landing drills. Keeping with her philosophy that a long jumper must be a sprinter first, Coach Yost shares a wide variety of drills to teach speed, power and explosiveness. Yost and her athletes demonstrate a clear and logical method to develop a consistent runway approach. Eight different drills are demonstrated to teach a proper takeoff and landing, along with short approach methods to teach the whole long jump action. Besides demonstrating the correct method of executing these drills, Coach Yost also shows common errors made by young athletes when these drills are introduced and how to correct these errors. Coach Yost provides you with essential techniques and drills that will help you reach new distances this season! 44 minutes. 2013. DVD. This DVD is part of the set: Becoming a Champion: Girls' Track & Field Series.
