28 minutes. 2006.28 Speed & Power Drills for the 800 Meters
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.

University of Miami Jumps Coach;
former University of Texas-El Paso Assistant Track Coach, Jumps/Multi Events
In this four-part instructional DVD, Calvin Robinson demonstrates more than 20 drills to increase an athlete's speed and power in the vertical jumps. The four segments in this DVD are warm-up drills, speed drills, power drills and Olympic style lifting. Coach Robinson analyzes the differences between the high jump and pole vault prior to drill work. Proper warm-up includes dynamic flex skills such as the hip circle, front leg swing, lateral swings, eagles, scorpions, inverted and lateral scissors. The warm-up drills are the same for the high jump and pole vault, however the pole is carried in each pole vault drill. The Speed Drill section focuses on building speed down the runway, endurance and acceleration. Robinson includes plyometric drills to develop speed and power. The plyometric jumps focus on stabilization and can be executed with one or two legs and work a different set of muscles for jumpers. Plyometric multi-throws are done with med balls and emphasize a straight back and good posture. This combination of drills and skill development for vertical jumping can greatly improve an athlete's performance.
