First up Charlie discusses the role of tempo in speed development with more detail about the physiological mechanisms behind its use. The discussion moves on to talk about how plyometrics can be used to support speed work and how the different options available complement other high intensity qualities such as starting acceleration and top end speed.
Charlie shares his ideas on overcoming inertia and expands on the methods used by the East Germans.
Ben Johnson's 1987 annual plan is discussed in detail and Charlie explains how the year is set up and why he scheduled the competitions in that order. This section also goes into how to decide which competitions to choose and for high level performers how to make sure you keep winning.
This film contains unique content where Charlie discusses how to set up and plan for the developmental level of the athlete. This is Charlie's version of Long Term Athlete Development and raises some interesting questions for those who work with beginner level athletes.
