As promised, here is last week’s recording from our roundtable discussion (with Closed Caption, sub-titles, and multiple language translations, just in case).
In this video, we had a 400 meter discussion with Kevin Tyler (ALTIS) and Mike Hurst (Fastrack 400) on all things 400m.
Connecting this global initiative was a challenge, with Mike in Australia, Kevin in the USA, and myself in London England. You can read their Bios in the previous article here.
Here is a brief index of our discussion:
- Considerations for youth & developmental coaches, vs coaches of senior & Elite athletes
- How do you consider the 400m event – Sprint vs Endurance? What are the Primary demands of the event, include Aerobic contribution in 400m performance?
- How do you onboard a new athlete? The Assessment process?
- Methodological considerations – various models – concurrent, long to short, short to long, etc. Differences Aerobic component in Male vs Female, faster vs slower athletes 43 vs 49 sec vs 60 sec
- What does a typical training week look like? Differences in Men & Women? Age Groups?
- What does a typical training week look like in the training block PRIOR to the competition period? Leading up to Round Management?
- Role of strength training in the 400m & Olympic lifting?
- Q&A – on Recovery of CNS, to determine next session
- Q&A – Transition question on the indoor “stacked 40” to outdoors SE1 & SE2 workouts (details on Tyler Christopher’s program)

Comparing 400m World Class Splits
At the 2:02:00 mark of the recording, we discussed this chart briefly (it doesn’t appear in the Zoom recording).
But we could easily talk about this for 4 hours!
Watch out for Part 2 of this discussion in April 2022!
