If you are familiar with the work of Marc Mangiacotti, the Men’s Sprints & Hurdles Coach at Harvard University, then you’ll love his latest videos for 400 meter sprinters which is geared to the College and post-College athletes.
[NOTE: High School 400 meters sprinters should look at Latif Thomas’s 400 meters program for High School ]
2 years ago, Coach Mangiacotti created a great video series on 100 Meter Training (You can read my review here, or go directly to How to Build the Perfect 100 Meter Sprinter… From Start to Finish to purchase the program)
His new video is called Advanced Concepts in Training 400m Runners.
With a total running time of 4 hours and 46 minutes, Coach Mangiacotti breaks the program into 10 specific sections, detailing protocols and progressions for the entire collegiate season:
- Introduction and Athlete Testing
- Training Considerations for the 400m Sprinter
- Fall Training
- Late Fall & Early Winter
- Winter & Championship Season
- Blocks & Acceleration
- Max Velocity & Floating
- Strength Training
- Mental Preparation
- The Final Stretch (4×4 Relay, Summer/Winter Break Ideas & Injury Prevention)
In addition, Marc also gives you:
- Full 26 week annual plan (every workout ‘on the track’)
- Full 26 week weight training plan (every weight room session)
- 10 specific warm-ups and circuits he uses in his program
But, most importantly, you’ll be able to ask Coach Mangiacotti as many questions when you purchase the video. And yes, Coach Mangiacotti actually answers them. I know, because the course is divided into 10 pages, and you can see the comments below each video (I recognize so many names). Please be kind and read ALL the comments before asking a question! Nothing worse than duplicate questions!
