Re: Getting tired of vaulting.

Plateaus in this sport are common for beginners all the way through elite athletes. Stick it out, seek out the coaching you need to improve and you will be a better vaulter and person for it. There are great video review forums on this board to help with the technique aspect also!

Good luck!

Re: NCAA taking comments on proposed box collar rule

I think we are arguing the same (or very similar) points, Becca. :D 1) The box area is one of the most dangerous parts of the landing system 2) The ASTM box collar standard is a good step in removing the danger 3) It is good that the NCAA wants to adopt this standard to improve safety 4) Due to the ...

Re: NCAA taking comments on proposed box collar rule

Toby was unconscious, had broken ribs, bruised internal injuries and spent a significant time in the hospital - I don't want to get caught up on definitions, but it was a serious injury. I agree that Chelsea's was not. My point was (and is) that coaching is not THE answer - it is one of the answers....

Re: Question re: mid-mark chart

I've had good luck with DJ's chart after I take a lot out of the table - it is too complicated. The only factors that matter are grip height and mid mark - from a 6L it had been pretty darn close the majority of the time. As speed is a factor of stride length and stride frequency we find that shorte...

Re: NCAA taking comments on proposed box collar rule

I feel it is important to emphasize that the standard does not require the SafetyMax collar, it just happens to be the one collar on the market that is closest to meeting the standard. As decamouse has pointed out there are other was to meet the standard of Gmax and HIC ratings - those ratings along...
