Circuit Training and Drills at Bislett Stadium


Chris, Martin and Patrick. This is a training session for sprinter and hurdlers at the start of the Winter phase. This phase is about general conditioning and fitness while training the mind to use 100% of the muscle fibres in functionally specific movements. This is fundamental to the development of the skill, to work to fatigue without loss of technique. E.g. the dips and narrow press-ups are to increase strength of the chest and shoulders (pectoralis and anterior deltoid) in the sagittal plane, not the horizontal. This should give my runners a better arm drive and more forward power in a month or two. I might make this into a video as well, until then, any questions of the exercise description just comment and I will clarify.
