Increase Hurdler Acceleration Out of the Blocks!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, February 1, 2015

Teach your hurdlers how to explode out of the blocks with this drill progression from Colorado State University assistant coach Karim Abdel Wahab. Coach Wahab wants runners to come out of the blocks with their body on one line through the knees, hips, shoulders and ears.

Acceleration Progression for Hurdlers

Drill Summary: Runners begin the progression with the lean and catch, where they practice keeping their body in line to get the feel for the proper position out of the blocks. Next, runners get on their knees and practice their arm separation, focusing on getting big separation between both elbows. Finally, both techniques are combined in the post up movement simulation.
