Re: practice july 16th

yeah i study them a lot. ridiculously fast!! so today i tried some 8 left runs on the track planting into a towel as you advised. I did 10 of them, as you advised, starting faster and ending faster.

Re: practice july 16th

Hi!!! thanks for the advice on my run. I will get a video up of my full approach on tuesday after practice. I do not "over stride" at all, I am very tall and bouncy to my 55' mid, and accelerate through my take off... My run seems to surprise a lot of people, so I expected to hear a lot ab...

practice july 16th

Just trying to get some input... My vault on the 15'6'' pole was very poor, as for the movement to vertical. I fixed that later in practice but forgot to film it!!
let me know :)

Re: Success Story

Maybe you should talk to my coach.... Our pit is an old non-legal pit that is to small... that is until we slapped a high jump pad on one side and bought a new cover!
