Anticipate the Wall to Make a Faster Turn!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

Dr. Sam Freas, Oklahoma Baptist University head coach, helped his team win the 2014 NAIA men’s and women’s swimming & diving National Championship. In this clip, Coach Freas explains what swimmers need to do in order to accelerate off the wall faster on a freestyle turn.

Freestyle Turn

Drill Summary: Coach Freas wants his swimmers to “bounce” off the wall. To do this, swimmers must drive their feet and push BEFORE their feet hit the wall. This means that athletes will be pushing their feet as they’re flipping. Once the feet make contact with the wall, accelerate back into the stroke.

Develop Balance to Become a Better Distance Runner!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

Zap Fitness strength coach and steeplechase finalist at the 2009 USATF Championships, Ryan Warrenburg, has athletes complete a single leg balance exercise at the beginning and end of every core and strength workout. This exercise is so important because runners are constantly on one foot.

Single Leg Balance

Drill Summary: Athletes stand on one foot for 30 seconds. As they stand, they can challenge themselves by doing various arm movements to shift their center of balance. Beginners to this exercise can start on the ground, but as athletes get better at it, they can move on to completing the drill on a bosu ball and even with their eyes closed. Make sure to work on both feet equally and keep shoulders over hips and hips over feet.

Learn the Head Lever from Eric Guerrero!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Friday, April 1, 2016

Eric Guerrero, Oklahoma State University head assistant coach and distinguished member of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, has two young wrestlers demonstrate a head lever for you. The head lever can be used from the top position to get you in position to drive and circle the opponent’s hips to the mat.

Head Lever

Drill Summary: On the chop, slide your hand to the opponent’s wrist and keep pressure on them. From there, take both of your knees off to apply more pressure and drop your head under your opponent’s armpit. Next, drive and circle the opponent’s hips to the mat. From there, you could also elevate the opponent’s wrist, sit through with your opposite hip, duck in the arm and go for a pinning combination.
