Mechanics of Speed

11

Earlier this week, I had the incredible opportunity to present alongside two legendary coaches of the sport (Tom Tellez and Loren Seagrave) as well as several other world class presenters at The Speed Summit in Morristown, NJ. The summit was extremely high level and the presentations were outstanding. I was unable to see all the presentations as I had to make the coast-to-coast trek back to Vancouver for the start of our pre-season training but I live-tweeted some highlights / quotes from what I was able to watch. I delivered two presentations, the first on sprint mechanics and the second on building the physical capacities necessary to run fast. Here’s the slidedeck from my first presentation:

 

As I tend to present with minimal verbiage on my slides, if anything is unclear or you have any questions please feel free to post to the comments and I’ll do my best to answer. Later in the week I’ll post the slidedeck for my second presentation.
