    Re: Form Critique - What Should I Work On?

    Improve posture (hips high and as CF said, back straight) and avoiding reaching/casting to reduce/eliminate heel striking along with the gradual improvement in strength levels that will come over...

    Re: Form Critique - What Should I Work On?

    Yeah, an over the top, unwarranted response just because the feedback was not in keeping with OP's ideal model.

    Over the years, 2 steps to the front foot or front pedal of the blocks as a minimum...

    What is your problem? He's not a child, not sure how you think I beat him up, berated him?

    Re: Form Critique - What Should I Work On?

    I'm not sure what in the hell that other response was all about-glad you, Vision1- can see my intention was to provide feedback and not beating someone up (ridiculous reaction) even if it did not fit...

    Re: Form Critique - What Should I Work On?

    Watching the videos a few issues: very little push/incomplete extension (too much frequency in start and accel.), need to separate hands/arms more on start. Hips look too low at set probably caused,...

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    Don't mix high intensity and tempo on same day or more specifically least not back to back due to cellular signalling. Sending mixed signals to the body will usually default the training effects...

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    At least once/week and another day could be some combination of bodyweight circuits, midsection circuits, medicine ball circuits, bike tempo, pool tempo, etc.

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    Maybe just do 800m for a week or two and monitor the times. It's okay to be closer to 60-65% now and then later both higher volume and faster times can be used (though not fast). I'd recommend just...

    Re: Question Regarding Tempo Work

    The issue with the session was possibly volume related. Might have been best to ease back in with lower volume and work up more gradually to 1500m. The other consideration is you need to time since...
  11. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yes, when people are not getting the results they feel they should or just trying to attain some level of improvement they seem to feel the answer has to be contained within some type of innovation...
  12. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    He blew off Ben's weights background/performances in the podcast describing him being an anomaly. I guess he missed the results of Desai Williams, Angella Taylor-Issajenko and others as they were...
  13. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    It seems like he's exaggerating just to support his opinion-that in his mind a heavy squat has little transfer to spring performance. If that's all someone did I would agree it would lessen the...
  14. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Additionally, SM said with DeGrasse he could not back squat 60kg?! IMO it's no wonder his acceleration was poor. That deficiency is down to coaching. No, he was never going to approach huge numbers...
  15. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    No, unless I missed it I heard nothing about foot strike nor daily training times. I guess I listened to it for the same reason people used to watch MNF-to have Howard Cosell piss them off but really...
  16. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    ...and now from the most recent podcast installment McMillan states (Pacey podcast) the most common reason so many strength coaches believe so much in the use of the squat(heavy) to develop speed is...

    Re: Tony Holler World speed summit day 2

    It's very true about Credit. Charlie gave credit to many in just Speed Trap alone. Anyone making such a statement that CF failed to credit others for their work/influence is obviously uninformed on...
  18. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    I believe the poor ratio of coach to athlete is an issue there-as you say too crowded. About 4-5 years ago a high level athlete I know stopped by to tour the facilities and that ratio was a major...

    Re: Sprinting While Sore

    IMO Your volumes are way too high. There are times during the year when a foundation of strength endurance/hypertrophy can lead to later strength then power gains BUT doing weeks of 10x10 for two...

    Re: Sprinting While Sore

    I agree with Chris that squatting, at least, earlier in the week-Sunday- when your training week begins is probably best. I also agree that if you are going to squat twice/week after a Sunday of...
  21. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    True and there are a lot of elite athletes over the years who could not make that transition to elite coach and clearly Charlie did not rely (as athletes sometimes do) totally upon what they did as...
  22. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Another difference from Charlie and some others is that he was with his athletes for the most part from day 1. Some can theorize about the long term development and what to do with athletes in year...
  23. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Not sure why they do that (not allowing athletes to chase marks) other than to solidify the preparations for anyone who is going to know exactly how to plan their training and meets going forward. Of...
  24. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Yeah I think our WC pre championships qualifying period was up around July 21st and of course someone could get the mark at the meet but no one, that I am aware of, is permitted to chase marks post...
  25. Re: Master Coach Charlie Francis Oly / What do you think?

    Not 100% sure but since none of the others has qualifiers I think Rowe moves up to the third qualifier due to his time earlier in the the year. Bednarek would go (if healthy enough to do so) as you...
