Medicine Ball Routine to Develop Your Hurdlers!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, December 20, 2013

Clemson University Director of Track & Field, Lawrence Johnson, shows us a great block start drill using a medicine ball and a section of high jump mat. The athletes perform a double leg two-handed squat throw onto the high jump mat, simulating the explosive takeoff of a block start.

Medicine Ball Routine

Several athletes are shown performing the drill and many coaching points are given.  This is a great drill to isolate one of the basic power movements of the block start.  Use this drill prior to outdoor practice or as a station in a med ball circuit during the general fitness phase of the season.

An expert in teaching the hurdles, Doug Case, gives you some approach drills to prepare your runners for the first hurdle. This will help your athletes judge the proper distance to jump the initial hurdle.

The “stand up” call will train your athletes to look up and be ready to lift over the first hurdle. Also, it is important to note that a tall hurdler should launch closer to the hurdle than a shorter hurdler.

Great Lead Leg Drills to Improve Your Hurdlers!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, September 20, 2013

Before you can take on a full flight of hurdles one must first learn the movements as discussed here in the “Lead Leg Drill.” Listen to former All-American, Elisha Brewer, and watch as this is a very important drill to master before putting an athlete on the track with a full flight of hurdles.

When coaching your athletes you can get a 180 degree or 360 degree visual on their movements. When coaching any sport, it’s important to have a well rounded view of an athlete’s movements so your coaching points and critiques can also be well rounded.
