Coaching, jumps, sprints & more
Everything about jumping and sprinting and how to improve your performance
I have been working with CoachTube to provide some coaching resources for long and triple and track coaches. My first long-form course is now available on the site (link below). It's a two video offering which goes into detail about How to plan training and How to construct a training phase (early season focus).
I explain why undulating periodisation and a specific highly focussed and detail specific approach works. Many coaches can waste time with unnecessary general volume. Why de-train your jumpers and spend months getting their sharpness back? Many of the world's top coaches employ a similar rationale as I do and what you will learn about on the course. For many it's a case of "Not what training you do but what training you don't do". The hardest part of constructing a training plan can often be about what you leave out. Hopefully, I'll simplify this process.
Specific is the way to go
Many years back I realised that specific is the way to go. Long and triple jump requires high-power outputs and copious amounts of speed. You won't get that from 300m repeats. Specific "volume" can be created by other means. For me it's all about drills and maximising their usage to develop all the required components of the long and triple jump.
You'll see first hand how I do this on in this two video 30min plus course. There are also associated notes to go with the videos which will help to further explain what you are seeing and hearing. And there are also links to other resources which will aid your learning on how to coach the long and triple jump.
Look out for more courses from me on Coach Tube.
