Develop Power for Greater Acceleration in the Sprints!

Maurice Wilson was the Jamaican National Team Head Coach at the 2012 Olympic Games, and now he shows you a great drill for working on explosive power during the acceleration phase of the sprints. Athletes will perform an under-hand squat toss with a medicine ball. This will focus on triple extension of the hips, knees, and ankles which is key in explosive power.

Medicine Ball Bucket Toss Drill

Two athletes preform this drill. Both times the film is shown in regular speed and slow-motion so that you can see the breakdown of the drill. Coach Wilson gives cues on what to look for with hip placement of the athletes. This is a great drill to isolate and teach explosive power for starting out of the blocks and the acceleration phase. This drill can be done all year and in any gym or track complex.

Improve Your Starts by Getting Off the Blocks Faster!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Friday, July 19, 2013

Here we feature drills by coach Maurice Wilson of the Jamaican National Track & Field Team Head Coach. Jamaica has a long tradition of sprinting success, all the way back to Olympic 200 champion Don Quarrie from 1976 to “the World’s Fastest Man” today in Usain Bolt. Critical to any success in the sprints will be the start. His use of drills and strength building at the high school level involves the same techniques and philosophies as the Jamaican Olympic teams.

 

Coach Wilson first determines how to determine leg placement in the blocks by use of a “fall and start” drill. This will determine your “quick leg”. The leg that comes forward to catch your fall will be the leg you will place in the front block. Next, Coach Wilson makes sure that the three command start is understood. Sometimes as coaches we forget that athletes may need to learn the very basics of the event. Coach Wilson stresses proper positioning and relaxation in the blocks. He then stresses the proper way to drive out of the blocks, staying low and with what he terms the “proper heel recovery.”
