with Jeremy Fischer,
Head Coach and Lead Instructor at the Chula Vista High Performance Training Center/USA Track and Field;
USATF Level 3 Certified, holds Level 2 Certificates in the sprints, jumps and throws and currently serves as the Level 2 (event specific school) Jumps Lead Instructor;

So much emphasis is placed on sport-specific technique with little focus given to building the athletic qualities required to compete at higher levels. No matter the status of the athlete, every athlete is lacking or missing certain athletic skills.

Jeremy Fischer presents his progressive system for developing Olympic-caliber athletes that is applicable for participants in any sport, at any level of competition. He starts by showing you how to assess the performance levels of your players to determine a training program.

You'll see how to progress your athletes through a workout, from static stretches to maximum velocity drills, with over 100 exercises. Coach Fischer also discusses how you can implement periodization to appropriately adapt the workouts, rest and nutrition of your training program over the course of the year.

Athlete Assessment

Baselines are critical for achieving greater success with program design for athletes. Coach Fischer breaks down the specifics for assessing posture, flexibility, muscle balance and joint mobility. The more specific the training components can be tailored to fit the individual needs of the athlete, the better the outcome.

Stretches

Prepare athletes for the upcoming workout with a series of eight static stretches that will help warm up all of the major muscles in the core and legs. Coach Fischer demonstrates 23 drills to help your athletes activate a range of muscle groups with dynamic flexibility exercises. You will be able to pick and choose drills from several categories, such as the hip series, inverted series and core series of movements to help you tailor your training to the needs of your athletes.

Get your athletes standing and progressing the intensity of their work out with 16 muscle mobility drills to get leg muscle and joints prepared for work. Also, with a fence or hurdle, Coach Fischer demonstrates seven drills to warm-up the hips with a range of motions. The workout progresses to drills that focus on mobility, different types of turns and moving in different planes in 12 walking drills.

Acceleration Development

Coach Fischer explains the correct angles and mechanics associated with building greater levels of speed. He shows 21 speed and acceleration drills to get your athletes' muscles firing from different angles, improve their running mechanics and promote explosive athletic movements. Coach Fischer takes you to the pinnacle of his progression with eight drills that will have your athletes performing movements at maximum velocity.

Periodization

Coach Fischer talks about periodization using a seasonal approach to total athlete development. This ensures athletes are peaking at the right time. He also covers nutritional advice and the importance of adjustable caloric needs for all athletes.

Coach Fischer leaves no component unaddressed when it comes to developing greater athleticism. Everything from recovery, nutrition, injury, speed, multi-directional aspects, flexibility and mobility to year round programing is covered, plus 100+ drills. The ultimate guide to build better athletes!
