Coach Adbel Waheb shares a proven step-by-step annual plan that he has used successfully for over 17 years to produce Olympic medal winners and championship caliber athletes. He demonstrates more than 70 drills that are important to developing high hurdlers. The drill sequence starts with basic warm-ups and continues into his Six Phases of Skill Development. Coach Waheb uses his drills to teach a consistent stride pattern, aggressiveness, fast trail leg action, turnover between hurdles and more.
Coach Abdel Waheb begins his presentation with a detailed look at a hurdle-specific warm-up. Athletes demonstrate the proper development and execution of these drills. The video also covers proper starting and hurdling techniques, stressing that a hurdler is a sprinter.
You will also see a detailed, season-long plan to develop hurdlers using the six phases of development -- a system that begins at the start of the school year and concludes with the championship season. Contained in Abdel Waheb's season-long training guide is a complete breakdown of the specific drills needed to become a successful high hurdler.
Coach Abdel Waheb's presentation is an excellent resource for both beginning and experienced hurdlers and coaches. His clear explanations of drills and, specifically, why they are done is illuminating, and his seasonal plan is a great boon to coaches who need guidance in this area.
