Peaking when it counts : The 10 Day Taper
Peaking When It Counts: Perfecting the 10-Day Taper
A video download presented by CharlieFrancis.com. Charlie Francis implements a real-time 10-day taper program with an athlete preparing for the 100m in a championship meet.
The 10-day taper schedule begins with a local meet as a last maximal stimulus, then progresses through meticulously to the championship heats and finals. This product is unlike any other video provided on the market today. While many other videos are scripted and planned for publication, this video was spontaneously created during an actual taper schedule for an athlete preparing for a championship competition.
In the process of creating the video, the authors had no idea how the athlete would perform on the day of championship competition. Not only does this scenario make it more exciting for the viewer, but also puts the Charlie Francis approach to a test.
Peaking When It Counts is a must have video for anyone working with high performance athletes and speed athletes. The video download provides insight into programming for peaking, but also identifies key sprint mechanics issues throughout the process.
