Do this if you have too much snow or coach multiple event groups

Posted by Latif Thomas



I have two program recommendations for those of you who:

A) have 3 feet of snow on your track
B) coach kids competing in multiple event groups
C) are responsible for planning training for multiple event groups
D) all of the above

Whether spring track is turning into an extension of winter track or you’re overwhelmed by the number of events and kids you have to coach, one fact remains the same:How to create an effective multi event training program regardless of your facility and staff limitations.

The way I’ve been able to get the most success having lived through both of these situations for many years comes down to using a commonalities based approach to planning multievent training workouts. By combining similar skills, drills, and workouts according to their general or specific biomotor qualities, we can use the same activities and effectively cover training for multiple events and event groups.

I have two programs specifically addressing, teaching, and progressing these concepts for your speed/power athletes. Boo’s program is more comprehensive and Reuben’s is more specific and economically priced. Both will show you how to create an effective multi event training program regardless of your facility and staff limitations. (Use coupon code COMMON when you check out and save 20% off your purchase of either or both programs.)

1. Boo Schexnayder – Multi Event Training and Practice Organization

2. Reuben Jones – Workout Planning & Progressions for Combo Sprinters/Jumpers

You can’t go wrong with either, especially if you don’t coach freaks and need to maximize the effectiveness of your workouts and practices.

If you have questions, I’m happy to answer them below.
