The Science of Speed The Art of the Sprint: 2nd Edition (OVER 30% OFF!)




by Tom Tellez

Speed matters in almost every competitive sport. For young athletes in some of the most popular sports, SPEED DEFINES TALENT.

If you want to run your fastest you must run with the correct technique. When it comes to the technical skills required for speed, the principles of physics and kinesiology – the engineering of the human body – must be used as the foundation for human motion. These principles have never changed, and their correct application has produced some of the fastest athletes in history.

That is why we can say there is only one way to run your fastest. And, because there is only one way, we know any coach can teach it. And any athlete can learn it.

The book begins with Dr. Arellano’s comprehensive explanation of the laws of human motion. Then, for the very first time, this book presents the work of Tom Tellez, theHall of Fame Track and Field Coach who developed some of the fastest athletes in history including Carl Lewis. Leroy Burrell, Joe Deloach, Kirk Baptiste, Mike Marsh, Carol Lewis, Michelle Finn Burrell and Jackie Washington. Coach Tellez’ application of science to speed development, along with his coaching methodology, is scientifically sound and timeless. His system and coaching techniques continue to produce consistent results. His assistance is still sought, decades after he first began coaching.

This book is the culmination of interviews, lab research, review of papers, lectures and seminars, hands-on athletic training and video footage analysis. We have assessed the world’s fastest athletes and transferred the specifics into easy-to-understand illustrations. Tips for coaches and quotes from Tom Tellez are also included.

This book provides the scientific foundation and link the science to running mechanics in a way that every athlete, coach and parent can understand. We break down all the details for maximum speed, because EVERY DETAIL MATTERS.

In this book, you will learn:
• The laws of human motion and the science of correct running technique
• How correct technique optimizes application of force on the ground and generates speed
• The very specific elements to study and train for sprints and distance running
• How to identify and correct problems
• A consistent vocabulary to use in teaching what to do and why
• How to change motor patterns for consistent results
• For coaches, the best cues to give your athletes for success
