I’m excited! After countless meetings, emails and phone calls over the past 12 months, I’ve ‘signed’ who I  consider to be the best jumps coach in our sport:

Boo Schexnayder!

And two weeks from today, Monday October 17, we will be releasing his brand new horizontal jumps training resource here at Complete Track and Field.

The program consists of four DVDs, each running about an hour:

1. The Long Jump – Technique and Teaching DVD
2. The Triple Jump – Technique and Teaching DVD
3. Exercises for Sports Performance Training DVD
4. Weight Training for Speed, Power, & Sports Performance DVD

In addition to Coach Schexnayder, the LJ and TJ DVDs include tremendous insights from current LSU jumps coach Todd Lane.

If you understand how clutch this is, get your name on the ‘early announcement’ list:

Boo Schexnayder’s Horizontal Jumps Training Program
I think I probably have most of the jumps training programs that exist on the planet (including Boo’s old stuff in the yellow and purple cases) all the way back to a handful of VHS tapes.

And I am willing to say, without hesitation, that this is the best horizontal jumps training information I’ve ever seen.

As you know, I don’t usually come out and blatantly pre-announce new resources like this. But this stuff is that good. And I don’t feel like it is ‘marketing hype’ to say that any jumps coach worth their salt would be nuts not to get their hands on this program the moment
it is available.

In fact, even sprints (and especially hurdles) coaches should look at this information because many of the commonalities directly apply across event groups.

Especially if, like me, you’re a HS coach responsible for sprints, hurdles and jumps.

Coach Schexnayder is the mentor to mentors. If you have a USATF Coaching Certificate, you’ve already been learning from Boo.

All the coaches I go to for help with my jumps program consider Boo their mentor.

Ok, ok. I’ll calm down. But as you can see, I’m pretty hyped to share this info with you. And while you can feel free to question my credibility as a coach if you’ve never seen one of my programs, you can’t really question the credibility of Todd Lane and, especially, Boo Schexnayder.

I’ll have more information over the coming days, but I don’t want to bombard you with jumps information only. (Especially since some of the people getting this email may
not coach the jumps.)

If you want to get more specific information on the horizontal jumps, go here:

If you’re not a jumps coach, send this email to the jumps (and hurdle) coach on your staff. If you are a jumps coach, send this email to your friends.

I’ll end with one specific example of how Coach Schexnayder has helped me become a better jumps coach…

Last year in my first year in a new program, using one idea I got from Boo, I helped my best (HS) female triple jumper go from a PR of 32′ 8″ to 37′ 7.5″

One season.

My best male triple jumper went from a PR of 40′ 8″ to
a PR of 44′ 3″.

Not world record performances, I know. But I’ll take that kind of improvement all day. Because I’m no genius when it comes to the jumps. (Or anything else!)

I have, of course, seen all the DVDs. They’re so good that you watch 5 minutes then have to press pause and pace around your house for 10 minutes because your mind is so
blown that you need to stop, process and try to not to feel bad about what you’ve been doing with your jumpers.

Overblown? Too much hype?

If you love coaching and learning, you know exactly where I’m coming from.

I also know that if I’m lying, you won’t listen to me next time. I’m not crying wolf, this is Boo Schexnayder, man!

Go sign up now!

To your success,
