    Her weekly schedule still looks like Tony Wells. From another site.

    From what little I know: Tony is all about power development. He loaths tempo. Lots of hops, bounds, etc. He’s all about staying within the energy systems that the athletes will use in competition.

    Here’s a sample microcycle for sprint hurdlers:
    M – Hurdle (acceleration type day)
    T – Hurdle (technique day)
    W – hills
    Th – Pool (about 2000m. You could probably categorize this as tempo)
    F – Hurdle

    Weights on M – F. All lower body exercises.


    But to answer your question, his over all philosophy is explosiveness, and to PUSSHHHH the first 8 steps very hard.

    We did Hurdle hops, Shock method work, and a wide array of bounds.

    Monday and Fridays are our explosive days, hurdles/3 step bounds/5 step bounds/shock method drops

    Tuesday and Thursdays-Technique days, Shorter thans, +5 minus 5’s

    Wednesdays were are strength endurance bounds for 30m x3 for one set.
    ^^^^
    Keep in mind this is for indoor.

    Outdoor, we did about 3 150’s full blast every week. the rest was just block work and tight skirts.

    I was reluctant to post his workouts because I didnt know if we wanted people to know, but after figuring out he had dvd’s that explain most of what we did, I had to post the information.

    PUSHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and EXPLODE is the phllosophy.

    The weight rooms stuff is all based off the Bulgarian system, usually 1 set of 3 at around 75% to 95% with speed of movement and explosion in mind. All Hamstring isolation (RDL’s, Leg Curls) were around 3 sets of 6 wit explosive contraction and controlled excentric movements.

    I meant if they were old/talented enough to compete at that level.

    I was thinking about selling one of my cars, or taking a loan out on my house to buy a 1080 sprint. All so I can run 11.00 next season
