Here are two great videos for coaching sprinting as well as understanding sprinting.
John Pryor is a Biomechanist and Strength & Conditioning coach in Australia. Primarily his focus is in International Rugby, but his passion is speed (like most of us). How to get faster is the Holy Grail for all strength, power and speed athletes, and that incudes individual sports and team sports.
These videos are great for the High School “team sport” coach who has been “thrown in” to coach Track and Field. There are tons of paid sprint training videos out there, such as Complete Speed Training 2, but below are two good free videos to get you started.
Even for Intermediate coaches, there are a few good “a-ha” moments that I have neglected in the past in my own sprint training program, so take a look.
Don’t worry, it’s not an upsell or pre-sell to any product. Just good content.
