hs track and field coaches suck

  i had to stay late at school yesterday finish hw. when i was done,  i went to see what the 100m and 200m sprinters were doing. i didnt expect the coaches to be charlie francis or anything but this is ridiculous.           
 begining of practice- 5 min static stretching, no dynamic stretching   ???
  warmup- 2 kilometer jog. no that was not a typo
  workout- sprint 200m, jog 100m, sprint 200m, jog 100m, etc    repeated 10x   ::)
  then they went to the weight room and i discretely followed
 everybody did EMPTY BAR BOX SQUATS 5 sets 20 reps each set   WTF
                 
i was honestly considering doing track in the spring :D   guess thats not gonna happen  ;)

damn!

the 200m/100m rotation isn't that bad though, it's a work capacity/conditioning thing.

the warmup/weightlifting seem to be suboptimal.. hard to say for the lifting because you don't know if it was just a very light day or what..

also, coaches can use static stretching to deaden the stretch reflex etc, so to keep an athlete from overloading the CNS, it could be a good thing on light/recovery days.. it's a way to introduce a governor into training.

U EVR THOT O DAT SONSON?!!?!?

ok i know from experience that my high school coaches are idiots

I had 2, one quit after freshman year

we never get a chance to lift, when we do we go and they tell us to squat on our toes, which is very very bad

they made us do box jumps for 20 reps x3 sets, which was endurance and we are the sprinting team

never once did we have recovery days, we went hard all the time even before a meet

we ran alot of distance running for being a short distance squad, alot of times coach was lazy and made us do 30+min jogs, which i have to say are just a recipe for disaster as it really got everyone with shin splints


we never practiced with blockes enough


we are a 4a school and we compete against the biggest schools in indiana, and most the guys ended up leaving half way through, or got hurt....so I ended up running against 2 of the fastest kids in the state and got schooled

they both did many things wrong, don't say HS coaches know what they are doing because  I had 2 and they suck and were very well respected among coaches....there may be a few who know what they are doing but that's another story   i amd talking average

well since they did track i am guessing they learned it from their coaches...they sucked

the Big schools that have a ton of money and what not seem to have very good coaches...and that's probably the reason they school us

there aer plenty more reasons why these 2 suck i just don't have time to remember it all and waste more time posting crap

1 thing that i like is distance coaches know what they are talking about, but their distance coaches, not sprinting coaches...distance is gay in my mind
sprinting is hard and requires reps that are harder but less sets ...so most people or average peopl(my track coaches) think that distance always works harder...no it just takes longer for us 2 recover,...they get really mad when we goof around inbetween sets and stuf..that's cuz that's how we are but we still get the run done, except we need the rest.....

every1 on my sprint team was dead after practice of sprinting or doing something for a long ass timeand overtrained

well, i am not certain but it depends...
most coaches are teachers, and they might get a little extrad, depending on program
our coach gets nothing, does it for love of track, so obviously that is what we get in return
college coaches def get paid
HS public school coaches probably get paid

actually..that is not certain that my track coach does not get paid...but he sure is not worth the cost..i would rather have a crazy coach like adarq
