If you didn’t compete as a hurdler, you probably struggle teaching the event more than you do with the sprints.
OK, I’m talking about myself…
But, even if you were a hurdler, as my mentor told me the day he hired me many moons ago,
“Just because you ran fast doesn’t mean you know how to teach people to run fast.”
Those felt like harsh words when I was 22, but no truer words were ever spoken.
There are a ton of drill based hurdle DVDs out there. And I’ve got a lot of them.
But, as I’ve learned, drills alone aren’t the answer. And there is a fundamental lack of information out there aimed at running a quality hurdle program, especially if you coach at the high school level.
So I decided to fix that problem. Last year I sent a survey to Complete Track and Field readers asking them for their questions about the hurdles. Then I had one of my hurdle mentors, Tony Veney, create a resource that covered all of the topics you want to know about.
So, long story short, here it is – Training the Sprint Hurdler
I’m taking a slightly different approach with this email. I’m not going to give you a thesis on why you should get it. I’m not going to lay out all the features and benefits of the program. The type of coaches who will invest in this resource don’t need it.
You know we put out good information here at Complete Track and Field. Coach Veney’s program is no different.
If you’re the type of coach who likes to learn things, apply them at practice and make track more fun for your athletes, you’ll check it out.
I’ll be basing my hurdles program on it. It’s half price for the rest of the week. It’s digital so you can start watching it in about 3 minutes. And Coach Veney will answer your questions.
Here is Tony Veney’s ‘Hurdling Training Program‘.
To your success,
