Learn a Great Drill to Work on Your Max Velocity!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

Cliff Rovelto has experience working with elite athletes and knows what it takes to build championship hurdlers and sprinters. You will learn a great drill for working on max velocity, which helps you maintain form in the later part of the sprint/hurdle events. The athlete will perform an “A” Run with his arms extended over his head.

“A” Run with Arms Extended Overhead

The reason for the arms to be extended overhead is to force the athlete to stand tall when performing the “A” Run. The athlete is staying tall and applying force into the ground with his feet. This drill can be modified for younger athletes by using a medicine ball instead of a bar.
