300M and 400M Hurdles Drills: The Best of British Track & Field
with Nick Dakin, Director of Coaching at Loughborough Student Athletic Club and US 400M Hurdles National Event Coach
Coach Dakin presents a 5-part drill plan for you to incorporate into your hurdle practice routine. Dakin's instruction consists of:
Hurdle mobility drills that work through range of motion with lead and trail legs.
Technical Conditioning, Dakin begins with postural drills that are designed to strengthen the core and to keep the athlete "tall" at all times.
Technical hurdle drills, Dakin focuses on isolation drills with a progression that includes side step drills, full hurdle short stride drills, alternating lead right and lead left and a one-step drill.
Spatial Awareness drills, Dakin's focus is creating athlete awareness for coming into and away from the hurdles.
Bend Drills, Dakin offers hurdle drills and strategies for maintaining technical control on the bend.
Dakin's instruction is applicable for the 300M hurdles event as well.
