Develop Power for Greater Acceleration in the Sprints!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Tuesday, April 1, 2014 - Leave a Comment

Maurice Wilson was the Jamaican National Team Head Coach at the 2012 Olympic Games, and now he shows you a great drill for working on explosive power during the acceleration phase of the sprints. Athletes will perform an under-hand squat toss with a medicine ball. This will focus on triple extension of the hips, knees, and ankles which is key in explosive power.

Medicine Ball Bucket Toss Drill

Two athletes preform this drill. Both times the film is shown in regular speed and slow-motion so that you can see the breakdown of the drill. Coach Wilson gives cues on what to look for with hip placement of the athletes. This is a great drill to isolate and teach explosive power for starting out of the blocks and the acceleration phase. This drill can be done all year and in any gym or track complex.
