Hurdle interest
« on: August 12, 2012, 09:32:12 am »

Hi

I am currently training for the 100m and 200m and was intrigued by the hurdles and would like to try that, but since i would rate my self as above average in flexibility, doing the hurdle's requires more flexibility then i have as it is quite high.

any tips and drills that can be used along side a sprinters program for the hurdles.

just tried to hurdle over some fences which was waist height, average amount of effort required, but it would place a lot of pressure in the hip flexor, illipoas muscle area and today my ham, back and hip/glute is quite painful.

thanks

  It would be a good idea if you get to a track that had a decent sprints program, and get the coach to help you out man.  There

is so much to running the hurdles that nothing I can really tell you in a short paragraph will do much good.  Watch good hurdlers,

get help from someone IN PERSON thats qualified to help you, and practice.



 I will tell you that statically, many of the hurdlers are not world beaters from a flexibility stand point. Dynamically, things change,

and this is the way you should spend the majority of your training time dedicated to mobility work.
Relax.

There is this athletic stadium which is the closest i have to a track which is over 20 miles away. Not many local coaches.

My area is quite lacking in track coaches.

Thanks for the advice will take it into account.
 :highfive:

EDIT: I just found a local track which is about 6 miles from here its in the same town looking forward to it.
i just have this doubt what if they train me the wrong way.
