Re: How fast are you capable of getting?

yes a person can get faster, but like my coach said i can make a fast person faster but i cant make a slow person fast. there is not denying the fact that hard work brings results. but you really do have to take in natural ability. there is probably some equations someone can give you but really its...

Re: highschool pole vault

Actually from a purely engineering point it would still be a Fulcrum There are 3 types of levers, something like a Teeter totter is what they call a class one lever, the load on one side and effort of the other Fulcrum in the middle, pole vaulting on the other hand would be seen more as a class 2 le...

Re: highschool pole vault

Oh and also i got a new PR of 13 '6 and i had the hip hight to go 14 or 14 '6 but i cant get my feet up, because i Dont invert, i get to maybee a little past horizontal and then turn over the bar, and at this point my hips are still rising but my body wasnt vertical so my feet drop over the bar

Re: highschool pole vault

kirk, i think i figured something out today. the weather is bad here today so no vaulting but i was in doing rope drills testing a few things. i think i am swinging late, this is partly because i am not always doing a free take off so i am behind the pole. (when it bends before im off theogroung ) o...

Re: highschool pole vault

ok ive got another question for you kirk. ive gotten a better take off but im still not consistently inverting. the only thing left to blame is my swing, i keep my leg straight and strong through the whole swing, but for what i can tell and from what my coach says, i am swinging to early, im guessin...
