Re: Finishing the top end

after looking at the video more closely... you are swinging your feet to your hands only... better to swing your shins/knees to the hands Based on where you are landing in the pit, your swing dynamics, and the action of pole ... IMHO you need to... adjust to a lower grip/stiffer pole and/or shorter ...

Re: Finishing the top end

also,
what are your straight pole #s... run and grip... pole flex and size isn't necessarily a factor...

I am assuming that your straight pole workouts are from 3Ls..??

Re: Finishing the top end

what are your #s for the jump in the video... i.e. what is your run/pole/grip??? (run length/flex#&polelength/grip height) for the jump in the video... I have a few thoughts; however, it would be helpful to have the aforementioned information... It appears that you are "blowing through"...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

What might be different between his 5.90 here and his 6.00 in 1985? In this jump, it looks to me like he's under, and his body posture is bad - it looks like he was leaning back on takeoff. Seems like I have heard that/read that he was running under here, but I cannot say for certain... Even from a...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

Interesting pic! I know he won the Gold in the 1988 Olympics with 5.90, but do you happen to know whether this was his winning jump, a warmup jump... I believe this was the clearance just before the final clearance... I will post the final clearance... the bottom hand isn't quite as pronounced as t...

Re: pushing back out during the swing?

notice the location of the bottom hand, not saying this is ideal... interesting position to be pushing or pressing from... kind of an overhead tricep press... using a 520 (10.6) for resistance... so Bubka could have been criticized as a "FibreHead" ;) ;) I'll put that label on a tee and we...

Re: EIUVLTR is in the Well

What is your take on resistance bands (small ones for around the ankles) in order to strengthen hip movement? Is there significant increases in the hips, glutes, and abdominal muscle to make sure that they are incorporated into an off season training program? Or are there other ways to strengthen t...
