Just a college freshman looking for some Looking for some feedback on the first practice of the year

Some quick info about me: I a freshman at the university of Texas at Tyler. I’ve been vaulting since 8th grade but missed two yesrs due to injuries. I was severely slow in HS because we had poor coaching when it came to running mechanics and never really focused on speed. I was a 5 sport athlete (fo...

Re: Pole Plant Rotation?

Good question. There is not a lot of material on this fine point of the vault. I know what I do, and I believe what many others do. But as Alan Lauder said in his BTB book, there are many different styles of gripping the pole during the carry. Yes, the pole is carried with the bend down (facing the...

Re: Too heavy to be a successful vaulter?

5-8 and 153 pounds is not too stocky to vault successfully. But I guess it all depends on your definition of success.

Too heavy to be a successful vaulter?

I'm 15 going into my sophomore year, I've been lifting for about 5 years and it's gotten very strong, but also bulky. I'm currently 5'8" and 153lbs, with less than 10% body fat. I also play football (American), powerlifting, and cross country (mainly just for conditioning, not real fast) my max...
