Feeding the Cats with Jump Drills by Rob Assiseby Tony Holler
“FEEDING THE CATS WITH JUMP DRILLS” is course #13 of an ambitious Feed the Cats Certification Program created by Tony Holler.
Feed the Cats is a revolutionary way of training, coaching, and teaching that values specificity, essentialism, performance, and love. After gaining a world-wide following in Track & Field, FTC has now gained a strong foothold in American football.
“FEEDING THE CATS WITH JUMP DRILLS” was created by national jumps guru, Rob Assise. Rob coaches at the hottest track and field school in Illinois, Homewood Flossmoor.
Rob Assise, a 19 year veteran of coaching track and field, is a TFC-insider and has written several for SimpliFaster, Just Fly Sports, and ITCCCA. He is the co-owner of “Field Focus” and the owner of “Re-Evolution Athletics LLC”.
One of the most important features of Feed the Cats is the world-wide network of coaches who have bought into the idea of prioritizing speed and explosiveness while de-empathizing conditioning, toughness, and high volume workouts. The focus on well-rested, happy, and healthy athletes is truly a departure from the grind of the traditional approach. Jumpers may benefit from this approach more than any other subset of track athletes.
Coach Assise goes in-depth in progressions and regressions of three of his go-to jump drills - skipping, galloping, and run-run-jumps. This resource is perfect for veteran jump coaches looking to add some spice to their programming, coaches who are new to coaching the jumps, and, most often overlooked, coaches of field-court sports. There is no resource which goes as in-depth on the movements presented, and coaches will walk away with an arsenal of options to maximize training time. In addition, Coach Assise goes into explicit detail on how to program these drills within the Feed The Cats system.
Up your warm-up, X-Factor, and training today with "FEEDING THE CATS WITH JUMP DRILLS"!
It could be argued that this course is track specific (long jump, triple jump, and high jump) but the drills of Rob Assise provide an amazing template for building athletes, thus the 100-level designation (200-level courses are track specific, 300-level are other sport-specific).
More courses are on the way!
