Learn a Skill Development Phase for the Hurdles!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Sunday, May 1, 2016

Karim Abdel Wahab, Colorado State University assistant coach and member of the Egyptian Olympic Games coaching staff, explains a phase of his fall training for the hurdles. The video outlines exactly what male and female hurdlers do in the first phase of the fall training plan.

Fall Training: Skill Development Phase 1

Drill Summary: The first phase begins with both male and female hurdlers starting in a standing position, getting a 7-8 step start and jumping over three hurdles in a five step pattern. You can progress by adding one or two more hurdles to the drill, as well as making it a three step interval instead of five. For men, hurdle height should be 39” with 11.4M spacing on five step hurdles, and for the women hurdles should be 20” with 10.4M spacing. For the three step pattern, the men should have 7.9M between hurdles and the women should have 7.3M spaces.
