Re: How the bottom arm should be used

Should never need to 'fix this' if the pole is carried and planted properly. However I am on the road in England at the moment so don't have time to do more that refer you to 'The plant for ambitious young athletes' in BTB. When I get settled I will add some more as it has become increasingly obviou...

Re: The One-Arm Drill

If you say you have those specific uses for it old son I will take your word for it. I think you should expand your rationale here because I believe that the one arm drill is often used by coaches without any understanding of either its value or its limitations.

Re: Commonwealth Games Men's Results

Re: Kurtis Maschall - Aus

In all of the debate about which is the best model of vaulting - or even whether there is one best model - I can only restate that the Petrov model is probably/arguably the easiest to introduce to young athletes.
