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.
