This DVD provides trainers with simple and easy ways to integrate linear sprint technique into their day-to-day instruction with multi-sport athletes.
This clinic was performed with actual trainers who required fundamental instruction on sprint technique. Sprint drills and acceleration training are demonstrated in a common-sense fashion.
Who is Derek Hansen?
Derek Hansen, CSCS, is the Head Strength and Conditioning coach at Simon Fraser University, BC. He is also the head coach of the Metro Athletic Club and founder of www.strengthpowerspeed.com. His athletes include 2006 Olympian Bobsledder Steve Larsen, 2006 Commonwealth Games 4x100m Bronze medalist Nathan Taylor, and many other athletes and celebrities.
What’s on the DVD?
The instruction is tailored to the specific facility constraints that many performance sport operations are faced with, such as limited space. Here in Vancouver, there are no indoor track facilities, so a makeshift indoor “rolled mat” of 30 meters is used by several teams. Even a 60 meter straightaway would be extremely beneficial to a 400 meter runner. This is a must-have product for any trainers that want a no-nonsense method of training linear sprint mechanics.
This DVD includes a digital copy of the 30-slide power-point presentation used in this session.
I enjoy hands on seminars instead of formal lectures. Even when I lecture, I’m usually given the 1pm time slot and I always see heads nodding from a huge high glycemic meal. (Maybe it’s me?) So I always prefer a practical approach, to emphasize the key concepts being presented.
A good example is trying to read Harvey Penick’s Little Red Golf Book without a golf club in your hand.
