The best coaching program on CTF.com?
Obviously we have top notch resources here at Complete Track & Field.
But, what if I could only pick *one*? Which one is ‘the best’?
Well, if you only coach sprinters, it’s CST2.
If you’re like me, however, and you’re responsible for sprints (55-400), hurdles (55-400) and jumps (LJ, TJ, HJ) and strength training, how do you address all of those event groups without necessarily having to buy a bunch of different programs?
Boo Schexnayder’s Planning Training for the Jumping Events program.
I know what you may be thinking. How does a workout program about the jumps specifically help me coach events that are not the jumps?
Using a Commonalities based approach.
If Monday is a speed day, following this type of approach allows you to plan appropriate training for individual event groups. But, it also allows kids who compete in, say, jumps and hurdles, to get appropriate training in without having to amend tomorrow’s workout.
So your jumper/hurdler can do *only* approach work and be fine for tomorrow. Or *only* hurdle work. Or some of both.
This winter I will have, give or take, 70 kids in my sprints/hurdles/jumps group.
No track. Can’t use the gym to high jump. Converted closet for a weight room. New England winter.
The only way to get anything accomplished is by utilizing this type of approach.
But, don’t just take my word for it. Take a look at this video I recorded where I walk you through Boo’s program and show you some of the ways I utilize it to make my life easy. (The video quality isn’t great here, but in the actual program it’s very clear and the video doesn’t skip. I know how to coach some track kids, but I don’t really know how posting stuff to YouTube works!)
Remember – with our 8th Anniversary Sale this week, everything is on sale.
