This week\u2019s guest is 杰里米·费舍尔（Jeremy Fischer）, USA Track and Field lead coach at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center.\u00a0 Jeremy works with Olympic medalists, Brittney Reese and Will Claye, as well as Paralympic performers. Jeremy is also active in the USATF coaching education program and is a great resource for anyone looking at getting athletes more explosive. Jeremy\u2019s experience as an athlete was a high jumper, and at 5\u20199, he leaped 7\u20196\u201d! One of my earliest memories as a young track athlete was going to \u201cThe Shell\u201d in Madison, Wisconsin, and watching Jeremy jump 7\u20194\u201d.\u00a0 Although he was the smallest guy in the competition, his unbelievable power 上 the runway and aggressiveness in the takeoff was something I had never realized was possible.\u00a0 It was like I was watching superman. Now, years later I have the good fortune to interview Jeremy 上 many aspects of speed and power training, as well as ideas 上 training for the track and field jumps.\u00a0 I really enjoy discussing training with jumps coaches, since the events are the pinnacle of explosive power development, and has implications for nearly any other athletic activity. Make sure you listen all the way to the end of this 上 e, as a highlight of this whole podcast series was listening to Jeremy chat about his ideas 上 the \u201ctwo-minute drill\u201d, which he got from Willie Banks.

Key Points: \tJeremy\u2019s background as an athlete and coach \tKey performance indicators for track and field jumpers \tPrinciples in the way Jeremy sets up his main power training cycles \tSome of the biggest differences in training a track and field jumper versus a basketball or volleyball player \tHow to approach strength training for long term development in the jumps \tJeremy\u2019s take 上 plyometric training volumes throughout the yearly scheme \tSome of the ways that Jeremy would change the way he trained in his experience as an athlete \tJeremy\u2019s thoughts 上 complex training and potentiation in the course of building power \tJeremy\u2019s thoughts 上 extended power training for jumpers, such as the \u201c2-minute drill\u201d \u201c(For our jumpers) We do the typical quad test plus 2, overhead shot, underhand forward, standing long jump, standing three jump, a 150m and a 30m sprint\u201d \u201cI\u2019ve gotten away from weightroom measurement, because a clean is good, but it\u2019s 上 ly a 40% correlation with actual high jumping.\u00a0 The more you start to high jump, the more specifics you see\u2026 if I\u2019m doing high jump with a weight vest from a 3 step, I think there\u2019s more correlation than what their clean number is.\u201d \u201cWhen you\u2019re developing kids the most important thing is developing athleticism, developing balance, right to left leg balance, trying to make them as athletic as possible\u201d \u201cMy elite athletes, they get fit fast\u201d \u201cWe\u2019re working 上 the tires, working 上 the suspension\u2026. After an hour training session, we\u2019ll spend 2 hours working 上 things like balance, pre-habilitation stuff post training that we have the luxury to do, at this level to keep them healthy\u201d \u201cI jumped 7\u20194\u201d in high school and barely lifted a single weight, did a bunch of plyometrics and things like that.\u00a0 I never squatted more than my bodyweight in the weightroom, ever.\u00a0 To go to college and have to lift and be 上 a regimented program was probably still too much for me, and that\u2019s probably why I struggled the first couple of years, because I went from nothing to something.\u00a0 Being conscious of that as high school and college coaches, knowing how to progress your athletes through development (is important).\u201d \u201cWorking with Jamie Nieto at age 36, 上 e bar away from a medal, we trained 2-3 days a week, and that was it\u201d \u201cThis last year I had a kid who jumped 24\u20194\u201d in long jump in high school, and I don\u2019t think we lifted more than 70-80 kilos in squat\u201d \u201cA lot of time we just jump into plyometrics, we don\u2019t analyze what we are doing, and we don\u2019t do it correctly\u201d \u201cWhen we are talking about jumping, we are talking about muscle stiffness.\u00a0 I\u2019ve you\u2019ve seen it, a long jumper slip 上 the board.\u00a0 When they hit the end, all of their muscles fire, and they go 8 or 9 feet in the air.\u00a0 That muscle stiffness that happens there, that\u2019s what we are trying to develop when we do our plyos\u201d \u201cAs I look at it, why did I run all those 300\u2019s and run all those extra stadiums?\u00a0 I would change things back then to working smart and hard.\u00a0 When I learned from other coaches in South America and Cuba, I couldn\u2019t believe the unbelievable quality of work that was done, and how low quantity work that was done\u201d \u201cWe do our potentiation\/complex training outside.\u00a0 We\u2019ll pull all the weights outside 上 the track\u201d \u201cWe do the two-minute drill for all events (long jump, high jump, triple jump), it\u2019s such a low intensity of what we are trying to do that it\u2019s not that big of deal for an athlete to do that\u2026 sometimes I\u2019ll have my high jumpers do the two-minute long jump drill\u201d Notes: The following video is what Jeremy and I were talking about when he mentioned athletes who create massive stiffness in their takeoff leg when they slip 上 the takeoff board in long jump.\u00a0 This video is not nearly the best example of this, as I\u2019ve seen athletes literally go twice as high upon slipping, but it gives you the basic idea of that instant muscle contraction that results in super stiffness of the takeoff leg. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vB_BxNgFV4dY About 杰里米·费舍尔（Jeremy Fischer）: 杰里米·费舍尔（Jeremy Fischer） is the USATF Lead Coach at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center.
