All Access Wartburg Track & Field Practice: Jumps

with Marcus Newsom,
Wartburg College Head Coach;
6x United States Track Coaches Association DIII Indoor Women's Coach of the Year;
3x USTFCCCA DIII Outdoor Women's Coach of the Year;

featuring Marshall O'Brien,
Southwest Baptist University Assistant Track & Field Coach; former Wartburg College Assistant Track & Field Coach

The Wartburg Track program has grown into a national power under Coach Newsom's watch. Wartburg has won 14 straight indoor women's conference championship titles and nine men's indoor championships. The women have a string of 17 consecutive outdoor titles. The men have won eight league outdoor titles since 2002. In 2009, his women's teams became only the seventh team in NCAA Division III history to sweep indoor and outdoor national titles in the same season, and earned the inaugural Deb Vercauteren Program of the Year award from the USTFCCCA. The program also won the award in back-to-back-to-back season (2012-14). The 2012 women's team swept the National Championships and set new all-time meet records in team points in both venues.

In this first of its kind video, you will get an insider's, 'all access' look at three days of Wartburg's weekly training program for all three jump programs.

Coach O'Brien's approach is to make the athlete not only stronger through strength and conditioning, but also able to handle the training load.

These drills encompass O'Brien's idea behind "The 3 Phases of the Approach" to a jump:

  • The take-off behind the jump
  • The in-flight mechanics behind the jump
  • The proper landing behind the jump

Approach

Coach O'Brien discusses seven training drills on how to assemble a successful approach to the long jump. He shows a series of five bounding drills and two jogging heel drills to explain and demonstrate the idea behind his Three Phases of the Approach:

  • Take-off
  • In-air fight mechanics
  • Landing

Triple Jump

Get 14 drills that can be used as a guide to work on the approach, phase work, and the landing of the triple jump. These drills can be used to develop, enhance, and improve:

  • Running tall
  • Pushing up vertically
  • Popping-up and being active
  • Keeping the chest tall and thinking horizontal
  • Hitting the arm block
  • Extending the feet at landing

High Jump

Coach O'Brien uses a progression of 12 drills that can be used to establish a proper approach, a consistent take-off, and a successful clearance of the bar in the high jump. These drills break down how to successfully run tall, keep heel to toe contact, push-up and pop-up, keep hips high, rotate shoulders, and keep heels together and knees apart.

Coach O'Brien combines over 20 drills that train his jumpers to achieve maximum top speed that will emphasize good mechanics to develop:

  • The drive phase
  • The transition phase
  • The attack phase

With over 45 drills that cover Wartburg's high/long/triple jump training program, your athletes will develop the progression needed to focus on a successful approach, take-off, in-air mechanics, and landing. Being able to see firsthand the verbal cues and coaching throughout the drills, the raw footage of actual practices and the dynamics of a consistently top performing program make this one of the best instructional jumps videos you will ever see!

Form Running: Improving Technique and Efficiency

with Troy McDonough,
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist;
Physical Therapist and Assistant Track Coach at Iowa State University;
NCAA Division 1 All-American in Decathlete, Member of 2006-2007 United States Bobsled Team,

Running efficiently is the difference between running slow or running fast. Good running form and mechanics equate to that light, efficient, smooth running that leads to faster race times and improved performance.

Troy McDonough discusses, and has his athletes demonstrate, his ideas behind proper running form and why they lead to running more efficiently, which equates to faster race times. He provides insight into his dynamic flexibility routine, posture drills, heel recovery drills, and the cadence drills that lead to the technical changes to make a more efficient runner.

Dynamic Flexibility Drills

Develop a personalized dynamic flexibility routine. McDonough presents 12 flexibility drills that are a good way to warm-up and maintain strength. These flexibility drills are not just a general strengthening routine - they also target all the major muscle groups.

Posture Drills

The difference between running slow or fast is putting an emphasis on good body posture. McDonough uses five form drills to teach proper running progression. These drills will train your athletes to maintain a neutral position while running.

Heel Recovery Drills

A key component of good form running is the time the foot spends on the ground. You'll see nine drills used to emphasize heel recovery and pulling the foot off of the ground quickly. These drills lead to active foot recovery, which equates to faster running.

Cadence Drills

Cadence is described as how many steps an athlete can run in a minute. McDonough demonstrates six cadence drills that he uses to improve running speed. He also introduces the use of agility ladders and metronomic training to improve cadence. Through these drills, you'll see that if an athlete is trying to improve or run at a given speed, the only way to improve is to over-emphasize cadence.

This video demonstrates all the drill progressions needed to develop proper running technique. It explains why body posture, quick feet, and running cadence are so important behind successful running and racing results. This is a must-have video for a coach that is trying to develop efficient, smooth runners.

Critical Velocity Training for Runners

with Tom Schwartz, Ph. D.;
Founder of Tinman Endurance Coaching;
Coach of 2015 National Foot Locker Champion Drew Hunter

Coach of high school phenom Drew Hunter, Tom "Tinman" Schwartz is a USATF Level 1 coach with over 27 years of experience coaching runners and other endurance athletes on how to improve their performance. Coach Schwartz is a lifelong student as well as an educator. He earned both a bachelor's and a master's degree in exercise science. He added additional practical experience over the years working as a physical education teacher at the high school level.

Training distance runners is becoming more complex as coaches try to find the correct training system and schedule for success. The main objective of the critical velocity training plan designed by Coach Tom Schwartz is to yield better results in a short period of time.

Critical velocity training is a tool used to elevate lactate threshold. Schwartz will explain how this program will improve workout and/or race performance, yield better results, and make you a better coach. By breaking down his strategy step-by-step, Schwartz also identifies and troubleshoots common issues in training that can negatively impact performance. In this video, you will learn how to determine an athlete's critical pace and learn common training progressions.

Developing Appropriate Training Paces

The first step to implement the system in training is to identify the critical velocity paces of each athlete. In this segment, Coach Schwartz shows his formulas for calculating training paces by event group with different formulas for sprinters, middle distance and long distance runners.

Common Training Progressions

Once paces have been established, it's important to create a sound progression system to safely overload the athletes and enable them to improve. Schwartz breaks down three types of progressions that he uses over the course of a season to help his athletes continue to develop. These methods include: decreasing rest intervals, increasing length or rep duration, and increasing speed.

You'll find sample workouts that you can easily convert for your runners of equal fitness levels. There are multiple charts illustrating in-depth concepts on scientific rationale and conditioning protocols with a common questions list from other coaches that you will find extremely useful.

Troubleshooting Excessive Fatigue

Coach Schwartz also provides insights on steps coaches can take when athletes demonstrate excessive fatigue during these workouts. Explaining a variety of strategies, he provides you with a variety of tools to adjust any workout, or terminate a session early to ensure work quality remains high.

By detailing all of the advantages to critical velocity training and ways to implement the program across various ages and ability levels, Coach Schwartz gives you a step-by-step break down of how to develop training programs in this video. By using critical velocity training, your athletes will be able to cruise at higher speeds in workouts and races, recover faster between races, and increase their ability to out-kick their opponents earlier in races.
