Pacer One Review

It's that time of year again! And with it comes the need for new equipment. About two weeks ago I was searching a catalog to discover the new Pacer ONE. Which is much more affordable AND comes with a larger variety of poles for the beginners which I am highly impressed and excited about btw. Especia...

Re: Coaching

I've been absent for some time and very happy to come back to find that type of response to your question.PV2020 is absolutely correct. There are many vaulting styles but what ever style it is that your coach teaches. It is crucial that you commit 100% and work together to achieve it. (As long as th...

6 Sride Mid Mark Issues.

I've been trying to adapt DJ's 6 stride mid mark into my coaching and I do see the great benefits of it. But, due to my lack of knowledge/understanding on how to properly use it I am still debating on whether or not to use is. Simply because I do not know enough about it to use it effectively. I hav...

Re: What is your correct takeoff point?

I find this to be another irrelevant arguement on PVpower. It appears that everyone agrees that you whether you accelerate or decelerate into the last 3 strides leading into the take off they must in fact be done as fast as possible. Maybe from a science stand point Altius is correct but even knowin...

Tako Grip

I just came across this today thanks to the @polevaultpower on twitter. I would like to hear if anyone has been using it and if they like it. I can't see where it would break any High School regulations but has anyone been having any issues with it? My big question really is durability. Being $19 a ...

Re: Eyes at takeoff

Brad Walker stated in one of his Webinars that if he were to teacher the vaulters of today one thing it would be head up at take off. I have noticed large improvements in drilling and vaulting alike with vaulters posture and explosiveness in the take off simply because head position. I have found th...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

I agree with you and watch many videos on both and have to say i'm very intregued by Otto being he jumps from about a foot under consistantly and jumps very consistantly att a very high level. And you are correct that all vaulters have their nacks and they would hinder their performances dramaticall...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

Sorry I just had a bit of an epiphany but correct me if I'm wrong. We have an argument here between persons who believe you do not push back during the swing (Post Elastic Phase) because the pole will naturally uncoil which causes the false image of the pole uncoiling through bottom hand pressure. T...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

haha valid point. Looking back that is him lol. Foot in mouth. :o His brother's name is Valentin who is a vaulter as well. As I states above on his first attempt (Not his brother) his pop/push back of the bottom arm during rotation was obvious during the first vault and still appears to be chained t...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

This video was just posted by Renaud Lavillenie. I know Renaud does a major push back during his swing right following the I position but after seeing his brother Eugene here in the first jump of the video his what I thought was a major push seems so little compared to Eugene's. But no arguing that ...

Re: Alternate Models to the Vault (Petrov, Huffman Roll, etc.)

Glad you are happy Chaebo -but I believe that this discussion - while interesting - is way above your pay grade and will do little or nothing to help you to help your athletes get better. Take on and commit to the Petrov model - and you will be able to do just that. I appreciate your concern and I ...
