Description

with Dennis Barker,
Augsburg College Track & Field / Cross Country Coach

This instructional DVD is loaded with 28 drills for speed and power training for the 800 meters. Coach Dennis Barker stresses that this race requires speed, strength and endurance to be successful. The first set of drills can be used as a dynamic warm-up and to reinforce proper technique. Tall running form is necessary and the stride creates a line of power into the track. Fatigue causes runners to lose form and slow down. The next set of drills are designed to improve endurance and strength during the pre-season conditioning period and focus on the whole range of motion. These drills stress good posture; work the glutes, hams and lower back region; emphasizes good sprinting posture; and strengthens the sprinting muscles. All of these dynamic drills will lead to the Jump Circuit later in the season. Pedestal exercises are the next set of drills, and they focus on strengthening the core. The final progression in Barker's 800 meter training program is hill sprinting and bounding. Coaches can learn how sprinters in the 800 meters can improve the strength, speed, change of pace, acceleration and how to put a strong efficient force down into the ground in their finishing kick.

25 minutes. 2006.
