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

If anyone is in the Superior Wisconsin area on Nov 3rd, I will be speaking at their track clinic on some of the same topics of force application and stride length. Cost is 7 dollars. Contact the men’s head track coach at UW Superior for more information. Gdrexler@uwsuper.edu

I can’t make the clinic Adrian. Will it be recorded and on sale, as they’re are topics i’d like to hear?
Jimson Lee says
yes, I think Adarian will make the audio available. No promises.
@ PAUl, yes the audio will be available for sure. Video on key areas will be available also.
Will have audio from the clinic I am doing on Nov 3rd available also.

Awesome! If you can email me a link or post it on speedendurance when available, that’ll be great.
Adarian Barr says
@paul, I have a PDF and videos that covers the backside actions and force application. It also covers hip mobility along with backside actions and block starts. The cost is 10.00 .
It is the base foundation of what will be covered at the clinic.
Just a small part of what is going to be covered at the abovetrack clinic that isn’t covered by anyone else in track and field.
Peak height to start the landing phase of the long jump
Penultimate in the long jump, simply stride alterations.
