Develop technically sound and fast hurdlers using the coaching philosophy and drill progressions from the back-to-back-to-back NCAA National Championship staff at Texas A&M.
Vince Anderson stresses the connection between hurdling and sprinting throughout the video. He gives you drills in five major areas related to hurdling and ends with four exercises that will develop the strength and athletic ability needed for hurdling.
You don't need to master a ton of drills and techniques to improve your hurdling. Coach Anderson will show you how to use fewer drills and get better results. Using this refined approach and training an equal number of speed days, your hurdlers will see faster times--and you will produce an overall better conditioned athlete.
Speed and coordination are equally essential in the development of the 'sprint' hurdler. Anderson trains his hurdlers as sprinters versus training them as hurdlers who do some sprint work.
Coach Anderson explains how the athletes will develop in the drill areas, throughout the season, and passes along modifications you can make in order to assist development. These modifications will assist coaches at different levels in effectively using the drills. Anderson inserts coaching points throughout the video to supplement the demonstrations by both a male and female collegiate hurdler. He also shares how you can adapt the drills to your athletes' level!
