Teaching the Fundamentals of Olympic Lifts
with Gayle Hatch,
member in both the USA Weightlifting and USA Strength and Conditioning Coaches Halls of Fame; Head Coach of the men's 2004 USA Olympic Weightlifting Team in Athens, Greece;
Architect of eight BCS National Championship football teams that use the Gayle Hatch Olympic based strength & conditioning program: Alabama (3x BCS Championships), LSU (2x), FSU (1x), Tennessee (1x), and Miami (1x).

In a 2005 study (Tricoli), it was determined that Olympic weight lifting was more effective in increasing speed, squat jump performance and counter-movement performance than a vertical jump program. Similarly, in a 2004 study (Hoffman), it was determined that Olympic weight lifting improves vertical jump and 40 speed more than a power lifting program.

Introducing your athletes to the Olympic lifts has never been easier. In this DVD, Hall of Fame weight lifting coach, Gayle Hatch, walks you through the proper techniques and fundamentals for the Olympic lifts. Coach Hatch proteges have gone on to coach strength and conditioning at Alabama, LSU, Florida State, Tennessee and more.

This DVD is packed with five decades of World Champion training philosophy, and weight room demonstrations with a young athlete learning from the master of strength and conditioning.

You will see how Hatch breaks down the workout into progressive training sections:

  • Warm-Ups
  • Full Squat Cleans
  • Clean and Jerks
  • Snatches
  • Squats
Coach Hatch also shares a few plyometric drills that can be incorporated into any off-season or weightlifting program.

The lifts and drills shown in the DVD are simple to perform and require a minimal amount of training equipment. Hatch demonstrates a variety of lifting techniques that maximize power through the use of clean, precise, and efficient body movement. These techniques will keep your athletes from wasting any motion or energy. The techniques prove that a smaller athlete can be just as explosive as a larger athlete with his body acting in concert.

ACL Injury Prevention for Female Athletes
with Alan Stein,
owner of Stronger Team;
Head Strength & Conditioning coach for the nationally renowned, Nike Elite DeMatha Catholic High School boys basketball program;
former Montrose Christian (MD) High School Strength & Conditioning coach;
has worked with elite high school, college, and NBA players.

Females are four to eight times as likely to tear their ACL as their male counterparts. The highest rate of incidence occurs with young women from 15-25 years of age that play sports that require quick change of direction, pivoting and jumping. Coach Alan Stein's ACL injury prevention program focuses on safety, technique/form, footwork, low athletic stance, slow movement strength training, repetitions, time efficiency and productivity. Stein believes that agility and footwork training - proper landing, jumping, starting and stopping mechanics - can prevent injuries. When an athlete lands, the weight needs to be equally distributed within the foot, promoting soft landings. Other key items to watch for are enhanced balance, body/joint awareness, movement technique, and muscle strength (especially the hamstring). There are two main non-contact mechanisms that have been identified; planting/cutting and straight knee landing. Dynamic flexibility and plyometrics are the ideal way to prepare your athletes for competition, and reduce injury. Next is a look at exercises in the weight room that add strength and durability in athletes. Stein also shares various symptoms of ACL injuries; guidelines are the same for women as they are for men.

Cutting Edge Speed and Agility: Base Movement Training

with Todd Norman, M.S. Kinesiology;
founder The Cutting Edge - Athletic Performance Enhancement;
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA)

In the initial phase of training for any athlete, entry-level drills should focus on; static and dynamic balance, foot speed and coordination, force reduction, first step quickness, base agility, linear speed mechanics, and base conditioning. Likewise Base Movement Training is the foundation of Coach Norman's Movement Progression Training philosophy. Most athletes, coaches, and trainers overlook this phase of training as they fail to develop the fundamental abilities of body control and "oneness" in their athletes. It is this phase of training that prepares the athlete for the more intense and advanced training routines required to optimize performance, and without it, athletes will either limit their success and/or sustain unwarranted injuries. Coach Norman utilizes a structured approach to teach a proven system of training methodology for overall athletic development. In addition to a detailed explanation of Base Stance Mechanics, the viewer will learn numerous drills performed with the agility ladder, low hurdles, plyometric boxes, various cone drills, weighted sleds and much more. Mostly, you will learn how to effectively incorporate a variety of training components safely into your program, with the confidence and knowledge required to initiate the appropriate performance training process with any multi-sport athlete. Although considered entry-level within Norman's system of performance enhancement, the drills in this video are challenging and intense, and greatly improve an athlete's internal awareness and athletic ability. This video is a "must see" prior to Norman's more advanced training videos and position-specific training series.

"I've trained with Todd Norman at Cutting Edge Sports Training for several years and his training methods greatly enhanced my athletic performance.

with Larry Judge, C.S.C.S.,
USA Track & Field National Chairman for Coaches Education (Throwing Events),
former University of Florida Throws Coach

This core training program is ideal for any athlete, in any sport, desiring to move to the next level! Many functional activities in sports require the trunk stabilizers in the core to transfer force from the upper extremities to the lower extremities and vice versa. Movements such as rebounding in basketball, overhead blocking in volleyball, or pass blocking in football are common examples of this type of energy transfer. Better control of the core will allow you to move faster, change directions quicker, jump higher and become a better athlete. This DVD presents a multi-faceted approach to core training that includes specialized medicine ball work, weighted abdominal exercises, dumbbell circuits, ballistic release work, and Olympic lifting movements.
