Vault practice

How should I divide up my vault practices. I usually take 3 to 5 four left vaults then vault from seven for the rest of the practice. Should I spend more time on short runs ( like whole practices at a time). I usually vault twice a week and maybe 3 times in the spring

Re: Pre-meet snack

sometimes fruit, sometimes granola bars or cliff bars. my coach swears by taking a spoon of honey right before you jump as a sort of energy shot

Re: 13' 6" needs improvement

thanks. im going to hold off on the rag drill just because i already have some issues with looking down at the box and that would probably just make it worse. my 7 step has moved in almost 3 feet since last year (because i used to over stride) it probably does need to go out some so ill inch it back...

Re: breaking the 14' barrier

I made this post back when my personal best was 13', and when i was struggling to hit it consistantly. I have greatly improved since then and have had good looks at 14' from a 5 step (went back to a 3 and have been working my way back since then). I still have many things to work on and look forward...

Technique or power?

I agree, but i also believe huge improvements can be made by improving physically as well. My question is, which is easier? to make your technique flawless or to become a f...
