In the video clip below learn how to teach your hurdlers how to explode out of the blocks. The drill progression demonstrated below is from Colorado State University assistant coach Karim Abdel Wahab. Coach Wahab wants runners to come out of the blocks with their body on one line through the knees, hips, shoulders and ears.
These drills come from a DVD that contains over 70 drills designed to improve hurdlers. For more information about the DVD that these drills came from click the link Curriculum Guide for the Hurdles
