In this course, Nick will present and describe a technical model for acceleration in the context of linear sprinting. He will place specific emphasis on the physics underpinning acceleration mechanics and discuss the role of force, velocity, and acceleration. Additional emphasis will be placed on an overall linear speed sprinting model in the context of a 40-yard sprint. Nick will then present a 3-component model for coaching and cueing athletes/clients based on common errors observed during acceleration. Finally, he will provide program design recommendations and considerations for the Movement Skills- Acceleration training component.
The acceleration practical will provide focused movement strategies for wall drills, marching and skipping, resisted sprinting, and free sprints. Specific emphasis will be placed on instruction, error identification, error correction, and cueing.
