The Art of Hurdling is a manual for hurdle coaches at all levels, from beginners to the elite. In this book, long-time hurdle coach Steve McGill presents the methods he has used over the past 25 years to produce some of the best hurdlers to ever come out of the state of North Carolina. Throughout his career, McGill has produced many state champions and national champions at the youth and high school levels, and many of McGill’s hurdlers have gone on to have major success at the collegiate level and beyond, including current women’s 100m world record holder Kendra Harrison. In this book, McGill explains in simple, straightforward language how to teach hurdlers to hurdle efficiently, free of wasted motions and efforts. The book contains many illustrations of the drills and workouts McGill uses in training his athletes. If you’re looking for a book that will help you to bring out the best in your hurdlers, this practical guide is the one for you. Beyond that, McGill ties in the hurdling advice to his larger life philosophy: learn technique so that you can transcend technique. For McGill, any endeavor that an individual chooses is, in fact, an art form, and that by focusing on mastering the art form, one can discover one’s true potential.
