Essential Sprint Drills from Doug Case!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Saturday, August 1, 2015

University of Arkansas assistant coach, Doug Case, uses the warm-up drills in this video to help prepare his runners’ bodies for competition. These drills will fire up the muscles athletes need the most during sprints, helping sprinters run their fastest while avoiding injuries.

Sprint Drills

Drill Summary: This clip shows three exercises for sprinters.

1. A March – Athletes walk forward and get their knees high in front of them, while also focusing on keeping their toes up with good body position.

2. A Skips – Athletes once again get their knees high and keep their toes up, but skip instead of walking.

3. Rotary Running – Athletes work on getting their feet to their butts while moving forward at a slow pace, but maintaining quick feet and good arm movement. After 10 meters of Rotary Running, have athletes use the same techniques as they sprint forward.

Keys to the Drill:

1) High knees.
2) Toes pointed up.
3) Don’t land on “mushy feet.”
4) Good arm movement.

Bond Shymansky is the former Marquette University Volleyball Head Coach and he provides clear instruction on the performance, strategy and purpose behind this drill. Coach Shymansky explains why traditional pepper creates several problems and how this drill addresses these issues.

Triangle Pepper

In this drill involving three players, players have to work together against the hitter and the warm up evolves into a much more random, game-like fashion than traditional pepper, which tends to be more linear.
