Acceleration and Max Velocity: Activities and Progressions with Gabe Sandersby Christian Korfist
TFC8 Clinic Presentation with Gabe Sanders, Stanford Assistant Coach Sprints/Hurdles/Relays, on Acceleration and Max Velocity Progression and Drills for Training. This course is intended to provoke a lot of thought and to give a few points of reference as to
- How you can implement acceleration work
- How you can implement speed work (max velocity) throughout the year
- Understanding of how it is not a binary process of either sprinting or not sprinting on a given day
- Understanding that along the spectrum of sprinting, acceleration, and max velocity, there is a spectrum of intensity
All rules are not created equal... 3x60m and 6x30m can mean many different things depending on the context.
This course is a must if you want to learn how to implement speed training year-round. This will help you create your own workouts while keeping in consideration the ages of your athletes, point of career, environment, resources, and facilities available.
Unlike most facilities who are staffed by young coaches who rely on their recent playing career and “cool” factor, Slow Guy Speed School is staffed by Chris Korfist, a “sprint guru” with an international following.
With over 55 all-state sprinters and countless other high school all-state athletes, and over 20 years experience, he knows what is appropriate for the athlete in the room and not so concerned about what the pros are doing or someone else journey to where they got.
In fact, the methods have been so effective, Chris has consulted NFL teams, Big 10 Universities, Olympic team and U.S. Special Forces.
