Essential Sprint Drills from Doug Case!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, August 1, 2015

University of Arkansas assistant coach, Doug Case, uses the warm-up drills in this video to help prepare his runners’ bodies for competition. These drills will fire up the muscles athletes need the most during sprints, helping sprinters run their fastest while avoiding injuries.

Sprint Drills

Drill Summary: This clip shows three exercises for sprinters.

1. A March – Athletes walk forward and get their knees high in front of them, while also focusing on keeping their toes up with good body position.

2. A Skips – Athletes once again get their knees high and keep their toes up, but skip instead of walking.

3. Rotary Running – Athletes work on getting their feet to their butts while moving forward at a slow pace, but maintaining quick feet and good arm movement. After 10 meters of Rotary Running, have athletes use the same techniques as they sprint forward.

Keys to the Drill:

1) High knees.
2) Toes pointed up.
3) Don’t land on “mushy feet.”
4) Good arm movement.

Learn to Attack a 3-Step Hurdle at Top Speed!

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

The extra space between the second and third hurdles in the “3-Step 5-Step 3-Step Drill” allows the athlete to sprint faster than they’re usually able to. This is why University of Arkansas assistant coach Doug Case uses the drill – to train his athletes how to handle the hurdles at overspeed.

3-Step 5-Step 3-Step Drill

Drill Summary: Set up four hurdles. The distance between the first and second hurdles should allow for a proper 3-step interval, followed by a 5-step interval between the second and third hurdles, and one more 3-step gap between the third and fourth hurdles. The athlete takes off on the coach’s command, focusing on reaching top speed during the 5-step interval so they can learn to hurdle running slightly faster than their usual pace.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Be very fast on the 5-step portion.
2) Step down quickly with the lead leg going over the hurdles.
3) Pull the trail leg through on a flat plane.
4) Develop a rhythm.
