  1. Re: Behind The Scenes With Khalifa St. Fort Ato boldons athlete.

    I don't like the start position his athletes are in; I think there is energy and speed loss through hip flexion/extension that will result from each stride. I could be wrong though.

    Re: Photo Finish Operators ?

    I may have scared you off, but major problems don't happen very often. Plus, you are usually protected from the general public's wrath. While coaches/athletes/parents/meet directors get grumpy over...

    Re: Photo Finish Operators ?

    In my opinion, it's the position of most responsibility at a meet. If you don't handle pressure well, it may not be a good fit, because when things go wrong, it's up to you to solve them.

  4. Re: The correct way to move your legs when sprinting

    I would agree that trying to push into the ground and extend hips is likely to slow you down. What sprinters will "feel" will change with their speed. What sort of times are you running? I think...

    Re: Presentation Ben Johnson in Belgrade 2017

    That wasn't my reaction. Ben is strong and heavy and IMO is more likely to do damage with that routine than anything else.

    This is a very good point. After a return to regular exercise with the goal of general fitness, volleyball specific fitness, and possibly some (Master's) javelin throwing, I also stopped doing...

    Re: Light Squats for Elite Sprinter?

    Did he really say that? If so, I don't think he understood his training and/or had never taken a lengthy break from weights while still competing.

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    You are right that 56 will not result in 2:02, because the conversion of plus 10sec works within a small starting range of 400m PR, then gets further and further away as the 400m time gets slower....

    Re: CF Approach in Mid-Distance Events

    That can be hard to manage based on how the race is run by others, but most females that age tend to go out too fast in the first lap. Individual traits should be used to guide the race plan.

    Re: 400m testing

    What about 2x split 400m? :)
    Run 250m @ 400m target pace or slightly faster. Rest 1minute. Run 150m all out. Rest 20min, repeat. I've found that adding your 2nd 250m and 150m times together is...

    Re: 400m testing

    That's pretty much always the case for race spec distances.

    Try a 300m and 600m. The chart I have says 36.5 and 82.0, timed from first contact over the line.

    For the first time in a very long time, Powell struggled to dip under 10 this year. I hope he can get 3 more. How many more races does he have this year?

    Re: Specificity of training stimulus

    True, and no way I'm getting 8000 W either.

    The last time I was in decent shape and tested my VJ, I was 32 and had a 33" VJ (so 6860W). Wouldn't have been able to break 12.0 in the 100 though.

    Re: Specificity of training stimulus

    If it's true that the difference is maxV, then I suspect your acceleration/drive phase mechanics are different out of blocks, and once you get into that acceleration position, you get "stuck," per...
