If you want to go to a track and field clinic that has active hands-on participation, and learn the real ways to make you run faster, this is the clinic you want to attend. Forget the old school Track and Field clinics, this one dives straight into applying the theory to make you faster.
The clinic gives full and clear explanations of force application. It will discuss stride length and how to implement it into your workouts. Other topics include blocks starts and reaction times. The clinic will also go over the approach run and the penultimate stride in the long jump.
This is not the typical USATF outline or “What the Jamaicans are Doing” track clinic. The style will be a hands-on clinic, lecture and participation including sample workouts.
These are the topics to be covered.
- Backside mechanics and why every training program should be short to long.
- How backside mechanics and front side compliments each other for force application
- Explanation of force application from backside perspective
- Asymmetrical Sprinting
- Backside mechanics and track and field, the better the better the performance regardless of the event including the glide for the shot put
- PALO and hip mobility as t relates to performance and injury prevention
- Elongation and power
- Asymmetrical arm movement
- Running the curve and stepping over the knee for faster times
