Race Walk Like a Champion (DVD/CD Set)
by Jaff Salvage
The Race Walk Like a Champion DVD/CD set is like a coach in a box. Spanning a DVD and a CD for your computer, the set brings the descriptions from the book to life while explaining all aspects of race walking in DVD quality video. However, the benefits of the DVD format do not end there; the interactivity makes it a coach in a box. It's friendly menus allow you to watch exactly the section you wish, over and over, with no rewinding! Have a technique problem? Just drill down through the interactive menus and your ever-present coach is there to assist.
Here's what each volume has to offer:
VOLUME I - The DVD
The DVD starts off with a definition of the rules that govern race walking. Once you know what you have to do to be legal, the DVD then presents every aspect of race walking technique.
Your shoes are your single most important piece of equipment. The DVD demonstrates all aspects of good and bad race walking shoes, so that you can make an educated decision about your shoe selection.
Add in the audio/video photo stories of the all-time best walkers in America along with a documentary of the top athletes training at the ARCO Training Center--many of whom will be part of our 2004 Olympic Team--and you will have a new appreciation for our sport. Learn all the lessons this set has to offer, and maybe you'll be in the next DVD.
Our DVD contains all the stretches, drills, and exercises to make you a complete race walker. Walking alone isn't enough. Without warming up properly, improving your range of motion, stretching, and strengthening the proper way, you will not reach your full walking potential. The step-by-step instructions contained on this disc are sure to help you on your way to being the best race walker possible.
Finally, additional books, videos, links, as well as other resources are available at the click of a button.
VOLUME II - THE CD
The second disc is a CD to be played in the computer.
Nowhere before have so many detailed training schedules (over 100, from 5K to 50K) been available at the click of your remote. Simply select your race distance and then your race time, and a day-by-day training schedule appears. The DVDs guide you from the first steps of a base phase all the way through your race day.
Once you know the techniques, you'll want a training program. Our detailed, day-by-day schedules are customized to your goal race pace. Pick a distance, then a time, and a three-phase day-by-day schedule is presented.
