Re: Pole progression and purchasing

Ok, HS poles, HS rules. The rules really stink because it is all about weight rating. But holding at 12' on a 12-140 and @ 12' on a 13-140 is a huge jump in relative stiffness and can prevent a vaulter from landing safely in the pit. And bumping up grip by more than 3" at at time is a really ba...

Re: Video Analysis of 16' 6" Miss

You are over-bending this pole, not blowing through it. With a blow through, you would have hit the bar on the way up. So I stand by my original advice, drop your grip 3-4 inches on this pole. It will give you greater penetration (the peak of your vault will move deeper into the pit - you will also ...

Re: Video Analysis of 16' 6" Miss

I will leave the technical analysis to others - but in my view you're technique is pretty good in this video. As for meet coaching let me say this: 1) Problem: you are over bending this pole on this jump, and you are not getting enough penetration. 2) Solution: Lower you grip - it will give you bett...

Re: College freshman need help ASAP!!!!!!!!

Yeah, probably mental. The brain does a pretty good job at self-preservation. I would suggest you try one-arm take off drills & 1-left take-off drills. Then go to 2-left take-offs, then try adding the swing to the 2-left take-offs. When you are confident with that, go to 3-lefts. Ease your way b...

Re: Takeoff-swing connection

Try this cue - swing your thigh to top hand. For right handed vaulters it right hand right thigh. Really you want both swing your thigh to your hand, and throw your top had to your thigh at the same time. Given your grip on this pole, you should also be thing to swing your feet to the top of the pol...

Please provide pole make, length, wt rating, flex # (if known), grip height, and number of lefts for each pole you have re...

Re: Jersey Jumps Beach Vault-Seaside Heights-June 30-31

I'm sure you meant Garden State Parkway, not Turnpike.

You should have swung in and checked out the action for an hour or two and watch from the boardwalk. Paul & Brenda Babits came all the way from IN to join the fun. They each won their masters competition.
