Re: NFHS changes minimum standard placement to 18"

I like this! I wrote our states governing body (miaa, mass) about a possible change from 15.5 to 18 because of how often I see kids jumping with 15.5 coming up short... And when you come up short on a vault at that setting, you're that much closer to the box. unfortunately, this won't help as much a...

Re: NACAC U23 Championships - 1 of each medal for USA

NR for Samuels...assuming he didn't jump higher earlier this year. Hey you're right! Though it gets only a brief mention from the Jamaican media. http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/sports/Illegal-wind-robs-Bailey-Cole-of-sub-10-clocking_11919188 Meanwhile, K'Don Samuels improved on his own national sen...

Here are my jumps from yesterday's meet. Went pretty well, clearing 13' for my season best. I've now jumped 13ft on 13', 13'7, and 14' poles...

Re: Short Run Feedback

Yes the delay is still there and likely will be unless you make changes in training and apply them over a descent amount of time. I am not sure what your ultimate pole vault goal is or how long you intend to jump and if it is just for fun. If you want to jump as high as you are physically capable o...

Re: Short Run Feedback

Here's a couple jumps from 10 steps (5 Lefts) yesterday.

Still the delay between takeoff and swing I noticed, slightly under at takeoff as well.

Re: Short Run Feedback

Big delay after take off, especially for such a low grip and short run. You are over exaggerating holding the trail leg back which delays the inversion. Good luck! My buddy pointed that out to me at practice yesterday. I recorded some jumps, just haven't gotten time to check them out yet. I should ...

Re: Short Run Feedback

One of my biggest issues at takeoff has always been dropping my knee after I leave the ground. This was probably the first time I've been able to keep it driven through my takeoff and swing. My thinking was that... since it's a soft pole and will roll over very fast, if I can finish my takeoff and s...

Re: Short Run Feedback

Thanks!

Watching it again I see that... could it be because of the soft pole rolling over so quickly?

Short Run Feedback

Hi there, here's a vid from my short run day yesterday, 7/3/12. Would like some feedback on my takeoff and swing and what I could do to improve it. My focus of this session was not allowing my bottom hand to to collapse into my face at takeoff, finish my takeoff, and try to connect on a soft pole. R...
