Because of the highly ballistic nature of the jumps, they require a solid warm up before training and competition. Warming up readies the jumper's muscles by increasing the force of their muscle contractions and speeding up muscle contraction rate, providing that much needed power and speed on the runway.

Warming up for the throwing events has a similar goal to the sprinter's warm up. We want to increase the force of the thrower's muscle contractions and speed up their muscle contraction rate, to maximize their power and speed. The big difference is that we are focusing on different muscles groups for the throws.

Whether it’s just a few hours before game time or waiting at the start line of a marathon, Trever Miller, the left-handed relief pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, has no trouble focusing on what he says is most important—and it’s not the game or the race. It’s enjoying life, his children and his youngest daughter, Grace. He runs to honor her. He runs to escape the stress of a condition he cannot cure.

AmericanTrackFacil.jpgThis publication is an example of how media should work with associations. As a former track coach at high school, community college, college and club level, and publisher of ATF for almost two decades, I was always curious as to what went into building the right track & field facility for your program.
