  • with Don Babbitt, University of Georgia Throws Coach; and Reese Hoffa, 2x Olympian and World Champion

    With incredible and insightful coaching and demonstration from World Champion and Olympian Reese Hoffa, Don Babbitt provides you with "what you need to know" to be successful in the shot put.

    Coach Babbitt's six-part presentation features instruction in the following areas:

    • Warm-up - This shot put specific warm-up consists of a light jog, a series of static stretches that focus on the low back and legs, and med ball throwing drills to prepare for shot put training.
    • Grip and Release - Babbitt presents technical instruction for gripping the shot while detailing the differing neck placements for gliders and rotational shot putters. Three release drills place an emphasis on pushing the shot without spin on the release.
    • Standing Throw - Babbitt takes Hoffa through a five-step teaching progression that begins with an arm strike throw and progresses through to a power position with a throw. He highlights the keys to poser position and includes drills for rhythm and balance. These drills are appropriate for a full range of ability from beginning through elite. Once that athlete has a good grasp on the power position with standing throws, Babbitt introduces the reverse to the throw to assist the shot putter with increasing distance.
    • Full Glide Technique - Babbitt teaches a simple three-drill progression for the glide shot. Included are glide shot put throws with and without reverse.
    • Rotational Technique - Babbitt implements a 12-drill progression that leads the shot putter through every phase of the skill, including a complete throw with a reverse.

  • 05/26/15--22:00: World Class Javelin Throw
  • with Tom Pukstys,
    2012 US Olympic Team Assistant Coach (Throws);

    2x Olympian and 6x USA Champion;
    and Mike Hazle, 2008 Olympian

    Legendary Javelin thrower Tom Pukstys shares the techniques, drills and strategies that made him the USA's top Javelin thrower for over a decade.

    Following a javelin specific 25+ exercise warm-up, Coach Pukstys breaks his intensive technique instruction into three areas: the power position that details body positioning from the ground up, body angles that are essential to throwing success, and the position and location of the javelin to maximize power for the throw.

    Pukstys emphasizes that the throw is not arm activated, but rather leg and hip activated. He underscores the need for the athlete to feel the separation of the lower and upper body on the throw. Pukstys teaches the release technique of the throw that requires pro-nation with the thumb turning inside.

    Next in the skill progression is the standing throw. In this segment, Pukstys and Hazle focus on a sequence of ground contact, hip, chest and the arm with pro-nation on the follow through.

    Pukstys progresses into movement for the throw. Beginning with a one-step throw and progressing to a three-step throw that adds momentum and pressure along with incorporating the penultimate or impulse step. Pukstys and Hazle discuss the technical aspects of the wrap, a more advanced technique that takes the thrower from a more linear position to a more rotated position.

    You will also see how to set up a successful throwing practice as Pukstys details three throwing workout days: target practice, medium throwing and hard throwing. Pukstys and Hazle move to the weight room where Hazle demonstrates seven javelin specific training exercises that focus on developing explosive elastic power and overall athleticism.

    In addition, Pukstys and Hazle share a breakdown of meet footage that pulls together all aspects of the javelin throw presented into an actual event.

    Throughout the presentation, Pukstys interacts with Hazle by coaching him and seeking feedback from him. This interaction adds a unique perspective for the viewer, garnering both a coach and athlete perspective on the event. Hazle's quest for perfection exudes throughout the presentation and offers a positive example for young athletes in seeing an Olympic level thrower constantly striving to improve.

    Sheldon Blockburger takes you through a series of progressive teaching skills and drills ideal for teaching your high jumpers how to make their approach more consistent, learn proper take-off technique, get a more consistent bar clearance and to increase their overall strength and speed! These are the same proven drills Blockburger has used to train five National Champions in the jumps and multi-events.

    Coach Blockburger does an excellent job of breaking down the drills and explaining both how to do them and their application to high jumping. Numerous slow motion clips and visual notes help explain teaching and coaching points for the drills. These drills can be used in and out of season to get your jumpers stronger, faster and ultimately jumping higher.

    Learn a series of four Approach Drills that can be used as a warm-up to save you valuable practice time. These drills include the Serpentine and the Figure 8 which teach proper posture, rhythm and running form. You'll get five layout drills, including the fun Dolphin Drill which train your athletes how to achieve that perfect arch in their back.

    Next up is a series of drills that teach the proper 'J' approach. Using the Scissors and the Somersault drills, your athlete will develop proper take-off and layout at the top of the bar. You also get a group of technique drills to put the approach and jump together to achieve the best possible vertical takeoff position.

    Plyometrics take center stage as you are guided through a series of 11 drills that not only develop overall strength, but coordination as well. Blockburger goes through a series of skipping, box, and hurdle drills specific to his jumpers that promote the strength and jumping ability needed to be successful. There is also a set of stadium stair drills that will not only get you stronger, they will get your heart pumping as well.

    Finally, Blockburger takes you into the weight room to demonstrate a comprehensive set of Dynamic Strength Drills. These creative lifts cover the entire body and include the flexion walk among others will help you get the best out of your jumpers.

    with Cliff Rovelto, Kansas State University Director of Cross Country and Track & Field;
    USA Track & Field Master Coach - Jumps; 7x Team USA staff member; 2001 U.S. Track Coaches Association Women's Outdoor National Coach of the Year, 5x Midwest Region Coach of the Year; 2001 USTCA Women's Outdoor National Coach of the Year; 2x Big 12 Conference Women's Outdoor Coach of the Year

    USA Track & Field Master Coach Cliff Rovelto takes you through over 40 drills used to develop stronger and faster horizontal jumpers. Athletes and coaches will benefit from this outline for creating more power and force into the ground, which creates a more consistent approach and a longer jump.

    This DVD is packed full of coaching advice and drills that are both easy to understand and clear in their instruction.

    Coach Rovelto breaks down his teaching method into two areas:

    • Drills for the Approach - The goal of any horizontal jumper is to develop the maximum controllable speed on the runway that can still allow for a controllable takeoff. These drills vary from working on the rhythm of your approach to building up to your max controllable speed.
    • Drills for the Landing - Rovelto shows you how most athletes land and how to correct that to land in a more efficient manner. You'll learn how to land "active," which promotes the greatest possible extension when landing. This extension can increase your jump six to eight inches or more, the difference between making the finals and going home early.

    Some of the drills presented include wall run, rollover start, step-step-jump, hurdle mobility, straight leg hops and continuous pop-offs. You will begin to see the importance of perfecting these skills before progressing into actual jumping. Coach Rovelto covers such topics as: Acceleration, the drive phase, and maximum velocity mechanics.

    Also included is a series of triple jump drills that teach proper triple jump technique, which includes a hop series, step series, and combination series. These drills can also be used to develop overall strength in your jumpers.

    Rovelto also shares ideas on how to set-up workouts and competition strategies.

    As with all of Coach Rovelto's instructional DVD's, this video is one of the best to help the horizontal jumper and/or coach set up a progressive training approach in a very easy to follow format. Whether you are a beginning or advanced coach or athlete, there is plenty to learn from this well produced and easy to understand video, which makes this a much needed addition to any track & field training library.

    with Mike Pullins,
    USC Assistant Track Coach

    featuring demonstrations by Jesse Williams, 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials High Jump Champ (7'7"); and Allen Simms, 6th place at the '08 Olympic Trials in the Triple Jump

    Mike Pullins shares his successful teaching tactics and tips in this DVD on coaching the horizontal jumps. Approach runs are a must for all jumpers and will allow the athlete to have jumping success. Coach Pullins believes 16 to 20 steps is the aim early in the season for approach runs. He teaches to drive out on the first four steps to build speed on the approach. To develop a good approach, Pullins demonstrates a "push, pull, plant" technique that incorporates hurdles on the jump runway. First and second phase run off, standing landing drill, box step, small hop & big step, standing 4-step and the first & second phase long jump are all good drills for pre-season workouts. Each drill is slightly different and has a special skill focus. Advanced drills for experienced jumpers include single leg projection hops, step drill, straight line paw repeat, paw read push drill, alternating step, single leg hop and the strong/weak drills. Rhythm is crucial to the jump events and improvement comes from the rhythm run off drill. The walking extension drill uses hurdles and enhances flexibility, posture and a straight line push. As a bonus, Pullins demonstrates 22 additional drills using med balls, resistance bands, jump pads, boxes and hurdles to create the desired effect. The emphasis is on addressing conditioning, flexibility and proper posturing.
