Almost a year off.. where to start

I honestly have been away from pole vault and training for almost a year now.. and I hate this. Being away from DI athletics is wayyyy to hard. I graduated from college and showed promising potential but after my fifth year I needed to take a break physically and mentally. But now having moved south...

Re: Advice on my vault

Lucas, Right off the bat I see a problem with the pole carry. Because you hold the pole low it causes a offset body position causing you to carry the pole with your top hand behind you.

Can't stop rowing

I just had my breakthrough practice yesterday with my plant! I could not be more excited! I used to lower my hands in order to raise the pole when I run, but I fixed that. I just used to not have a left arm. I also have been having lower back pain lately because my hands are pushing up and above my ...
