Re: height rules

Re: Pole Problem

wow a lot of info and i cant thank you enough kirk and becca. kirk, i do agree with keeping the standards back and that moving them forward is just to get higher bar height and not to improve technique, and there is so much left for me to improve.. my run mostly. i dont actually have a 14 165 i just...

Re: Pole Problem

yeah ive brought the run down from a 6, to a 5. now i know without video its hard but i should try to make my strides shorter as in quickening my feet as opposed to just backing up on the runway?

Re: Pole Problem
