• Most varied aerobic / anaerobic profiles over any running distance (Brandon,
1995). E.g. can get 400m’s coming up or 5k’s coming down.
Correlates to performance
• 400m time (r=0.74), it
indicates optimal muscle fibre
composition & neuromuscular
characteristics. (Sleivert &
Reid, 1996)
• VO2 max (r=0.70) (Ingham et
al, 2008)
• LT speed (r=0.63) (Anderson,
2013)
So….
• Must be quick over 400m and able to maintain it!!!
• The larger the VO2 max (& vVO2 max) the smaller
the anaerobic contribution at any given pace.
• As both races are ran at a speed above VO2 max
velocity, a large anaerobic capacity is also required.
• (Anderson, 2013).
Middle Distance Periodisation
• Linear model normally used. (Daniels, 2013 ; Palmer & Reid,
2009; Bangsbo & Larsen, 2001)
• Aerobic – aerobic intervals – anaerobic intervals – speed.
(Anderson, 2013; Fallowfield & Wilkinson, 1999)

(Poole, 1995)
Strength Training
Coe (1992)
An endurance athlete in the gym
was a rare sight in this era!
Strength Training
• Saw the value of strength training from a corrective
exercise perspective but….
• Strength training talks about developing MU
synchronisation, but does it with exercises / loadings
used? I.e. lots of circuit based stuff used.
• Anything that could be classed as power work
included in a circuit.
• Progressed difficulty with volume instead of intensity.

Coe (1996) p.29.
Modern Day Approach
• High force / high velocity strength training
should be utilised.
• Loads at 80-100%1RM low reps (Sunderland,
2005).
• Specific focus, e.g. max strength, strength-
speed(Daniels, 2013).
Plyometrics
• Need to maintain a high power output during
800m and later stages of 1500m to obtain speed
of ~8m/s(Coe, 1996).
• Saunders et al (2006) 70 foot contacts fast SSC 2 x
week.
• Improve running economy, better elastic energy
utilisation, neuromuscular control, faster ground
contacts (Turner, Owings & Schwane, 2003).
Strengths
• 5 pace system, hitting all components.
• Periodisation of the year, keeping the training
load as small as possible to get the job done.
Weaknesses
• Strength programme, circuits.
• Plyometric programme.
• Improving these areas would have developed his
force production and speed qualities further.
• This would have ultimately improved his 400m
splits.
Opportunities
• Only used altitude training when he was past
his best.
• Improved cardiovascular efficiency through
increased EPO, 2,3 BPG which collectively
improve oxygen extraction (Schmidt, 2004).
Conclusions
• Innovative programme
at the time.
• Revolutionised middle
distance training for
following generations.
• Inspired further
research into there
methods.

Analysis of Sebastian Coe's Training Methods

  • 1. Analysis of Sebastian Coe’s Training Methods Chris Hattersley – MSc, BSc CSCS, CES email: hattersley4@hotmail.co.uk Twitter: @hattersley4
  • 2. Overview • Background info. • Analysis of sport. • Analysis of his training. • Comparison to other programmes. • Strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement. • Conclusions.
  • 3. Background Information • Dominated middle distance running in 1970’s- 1980’s. • 2 Olympic gold medals in 1500m, 2 silvers in 800m. • 12 World records. • 800m WR stood for 15 years. • Published extremely detailed training information from a young age.
  • 4. Coach Peter Coe – • Hallamshire harriers….. • “Long slow distance running creates long slow runners.” • Methodical approach developed through background in engineering.
  • 5. Support Staff • Sought out the expertise of physiologists who went on to have exceptional careers in sports science. • Provided physiological support. • Kept them informed of any developments within sports science. Professor Clyde Williams – Founder of BASES. Professor David E Martin – Advisor to USA track and field.
  • 6. Analysis of Sport • Main Events = 800m & 1500m • “Endurance based athletes that possess good speed” (Coe, 1996)
  • 7. Overview of physiological attributes 800m Reference 1500m Reference World Record 1:40.91 (50.5 sec/lap) 3:26.00 (54.9 sec/lap) VO2 Max 72.4(±6.1) Ingham et al (2008) 73.3 (±4.5) Ingham et al (2008) VO2 Max Speed (km/h) 20.8 (±1.4) Ingham et al (2008) 21.2 (±1.2) Ingham et al (2008) LT Speed (km/h) 16.6 (±0.8) Ingham et al (2008) 16.6 (±1.4) Ingham et al (2008) Body Mass (kg) 62.7 (±5) Kinfu (2011) 62.4 (±3.2) Kinfu (2011) Body Fat (%) 9.2 (±1.3) Kinfu (2011) 9.6 (±3.2) Kinfu (2011) • Note how the WR lap times are extremely quick.
  • 8. Energy System Contribution 800m 1500m Reference Aerobic contribution Anaerobic contribution Duffield, Dawson & Goodman (2005a) 60% 40% Spencer and Gastin (2001) 66% 34% Craig and Morgan (1998) 73% 27% Weyand et al. (1993) 71% 29% Reference Aerobic contribution Anaerobic contribution Spencer & Gastin (2001) 84% 16% Hill (1999) 80% 20% Duffield, Dawson & Goodman (2005b) 77% 23% • Most varied aerobic / anaerobic profiles over any running distance (Brandon, 1995). E.g. can get 400m’s coming up or 5k’s coming down.
  • 9. Correlates to performance • 400m time (r=0.74), it indicates optimal muscle fibre composition & neuromuscular characteristics. (Sleivert & Reid, 1996) • VO2 max (r=0.70) (Ingham et al, 2008) • LT speed (r=0.63) (Anderson, 2013)
  • 10. So…. • Must be quick over 400m and able to maintain it!!! • The larger the VO2 max (& vVO2 max) the smaller the anaerobic contribution at any given pace. • As both races are ran at a speed above VO2 max velocity, a large anaerobic capacity is also required. • (Anderson, 2013).
  • 11. Middle Distance Periodisation • Linear model normally used. (Daniels, 2013 ; Palmer & Reid, 2009; Bangsbo & Larsen, 2001) • Aerobic – aerobic intervals – anaerobic intervals – speed. (Anderson, 2013; Fallowfield & Wilkinson, 1999) Sunderland (2005)
  • 12.

Speed, taper. (Poole, 1995)
  • 17. Strength Training Coe (1992) An endurance athlete in the gym was a rare sight in this era!
  • 18. Strength Training • Saw the value of strength training from a corrective exercise perspective but…. • Strength training talks about developing MU synchronisation, but does it with exercises / loadings used? I.e. lots of circuit based stuff used. • Anything that could be classed as power work included in a circuit. • Progressed difficulty with volume instead of intensity.
  • 19. Strength Programme Exercise Reps Sets Press ups 10 3 Squat thrusts 10 3 Sit ups 10 3 BB step ups 10 3 Burpees 10 3 Chin Ups 10 3 Back extensions 10 3 Exercise Reps Sets Barbell curls 2,6,10 3,4,6 Bench press 2,5,8 4,4,4 BB half squats 2,4,6 6,6,6 BO Row 2,3,5 4,5,6 DB Pullovers 2,5,8 3,3,2 BO Row 2,4,6 4,5,6 BB Lunges 2,4,6 3,6,6 Day 1 – Circuit Session Day 2 – Strength Session Easy, Medium, Hard Coe (1996) p.29.
  • 20. Modern Day Approach • High force / high velocity strength training should be utilised. • Loads at 80-100%1RM low reps (Sunderland, 2005). • Specific focus, e.g. max strength, strength- speed(Daniels, 2013).
  • 21. Plyometrics • Need to maintain a high power output during 800m and later stages of 1500m to obtain speed of ~8m/s(Coe, 1996). • Saunders et al (2006) 70 foot contacts fast SSC 2 x week. • Improve running economy, better elastic energy utilisation, neuromuscular control, faster ground contacts (Turner, Owings & Schwane, 2003).
  • 22. Strengths • 5 pace system, hitting all components. • Periodisation of the year, keeping the training load as small as possible to get the job done.
  • 23. Weaknesses • Strength programme, circuits. • Plyometric programme. • Improving these areas would have developed his force production and speed qualities further. • This would have ultimately improved his 400m splits.
  • 24. Opportunities • Only used altitude training when he was past his best. • Improved cardiovascular efficiency through increased EPO, 2,3 BPG which collectively improve oxygen extraction (Schmidt, 2004).
  • 25. Conclusions • Innovative programme at the time. • Revolutionised middle distance training for following generations. • Inspired further research into there methods.

Editor's Notes

  1. Detailed logs from age of 12, including autobiographies and films.
  2. Saw it as a science, evidence based coaching.
  3. Note how the WR lap times are really quick.
  4. Can get 400’s coming up or 5k coming down. Coaches of both events try to perform that % of each training component per year
  5. Link quick 400’s to WR lap times.
  6. If you can repeat quick 400’s good chance of being successful, only 2 or 4 laps.
  7. Note how the distribution is similar to recomendations on the previous slide from 2005, but they were doing this 20 years before! Miles per week given as an average for the month.
  8. Focus more towards one end at different times of year. Unfortunately the rest periods weren’t provided.
  9. 1984 olympic final, LA
  10. 6 month endurance phase, average 100 miles, peaked at 110/120 miles a week. 3 months anaerobic, 3 months pre-comp.
  11. Undulated every 5 weeks.
  12.
